Manchester United joined the race to sign Ligue 1 No.9 forward
Premier League giants, Manchester United could reportedly move for Lille’s Jonathan David next year if the attacker makes a strong impression at the upcoming World Cup.
The 22-year-old was linked with a move away from his French club over the summer, but the transfer window closed with the striker still at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.David still has another three years left to run on his contract with Lille, but there is again speculation surrounding his future ahead of the January transfer window.
The Canada international has been in impressive form at club level this term, scoring nine goals and registering three assists in 14 Ligue 1 appearances.
Meanwhile, he has now scored 41 goals and registered eight assists in 110 outings for Les Dogues since making the move from Gent in August 2020.
Real Madrid are believed to be interested in David, with the reigning Spanish and European champions looking to sign competition for Karim Benzema in the final third of the field.
Meanwhile, according to GIVEMESPORT, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are keeping a close eye on his situation ahead of the World Cup.
The report claims that a strong tournament in Qatar could lead to Man United making a move for him either in January or during next summer’s transfer window.
Lille are said to value the forward at least £40m, while a strong World Cup could further increase his asking price in the new year.
