United accelerated their pursuit of the Real Madrid star over the weekend.
However, the Red Devils don’t intend to stop there.
They’re also looking to sign a right-back and midfielder this summer.
And according to the Daily Mail, they’re now eyeing Saul Niguez and Kieran Trippier, both of which would enhance the squad Ole Gunnar Solskjaer currently has at his disposal.
Trippier would provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.
However, Atletico will have to slash its price tag of £34m in order for a transfer to take place.
Regarding Saul, it’s said that United are interested in the Spain international as a potential replacement for Paul Pogba.
Atletico are eager to get the midfielder off their wage bill this summer, as per the report.
And they could accept an offer of £45m for the 26-year-old.
