The Dutch U21 international is one of a number of names mentioned, with Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane and Pau Torres of Villereal also touted for moves.
Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Eduardo Camavinga that he will reconsider joining Real Madrid if they decide to sack under-fire manager Zinedine Zidane.
AS report that giving the Frenchman the boot will throw Camavinga’s plans in the air and therefore is keeping his options open about a move to English football, potentially with United.
The player’s agent, London-based Jonathan Barnett has labelled his client the ‘best young player in the world’ and suggested that while deals may be harder this summer, he still expects to break records.
That result, plus the humiliating Europa League capitulation against Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday, has piled the pressure on Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.
But from United’s point of view, the news that Sevilla are eyeing up Sanchez is a promising sign that they expect to do business over Kounde this summer.
The Red Devils have been linked with the France under-21 international for some time – although they are likely to face competition if they decide to swoop for the defender, with Arsenal also reportedly keen.
Kounde is believed to have been a target for Manchester City last summer, before Pep Guardiola’s side opted to sign Ruben Dias from Benfica – with the Portuguese star having since transformed their defence.
