Manchester United are ready to seal the signing of Villareal winger Samuel Chukwueze in January.
Real Madrid, Chelsea, Everton, Leicester City, Liverpool and Wolves are also working to entice the 21-year-old away from his present football club as was reported.
According to La Razon, The Red Devils are willing to pay the sum of £71m to activate the release clause for the Nigeria international.
The 21-year-old’s current deal with the Yellow Submarine is expected to be terminated in 2023.
His stats for the current LaLiga campaign is one goal and three assists in seven starts for Villarreal so far.
Manchester United after failing to sign top targets like Jadon Sancho is falling behind– but the Red Devils have also been reported to be associated with a move for the Borussia Dortmund and England forward again, and on some other reports coming in they are also clamoring for former Spurs star Christian Eriksen.
Chukweze has made 90 appearances in all competitions since joining Villarreal from the Diamond academy in 2017, scoring 13 goals with 12 assists.
He has also made 14 appearances for Nigeria and scored twice thus far.
