The Real Madrid star has just one year left on his current contract, making him an attractive target for the club.
United believe he’s the ideal person to partner Harry Maguire at the back, while also considering him to be an upgrade on the likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
At right-back, they’re big admirers of Kieran Trippier.
They’ve already had one bid rejected for the Atletico Madrid star but could return with another by the time the transfer window slams shut.
And when it comes to bolstering their midfield, Rennes youngster Eduardo Camavinga is their main aim.

And the Norway international has been spectacular in the Champions League, too, finding the net 10 times from just six appearances in the competition.
Behind the scenes, United’s key figures all want to see Haaland arrive at Old Trafford.
But history suggests that transfer agreement could count for precious little with Glazer, ultimately, having the final say.
Solskjaer, Murtough and Fletcher will have to operate within their means this summer. While United are financially stable they, like many clubs around the globe, have been impacted by the coronavirus crisis.
And Glazer could veto a deal – just like he did for Jadon Sancho last summer.
United went after the England international with vigour. Ed Woodward oversaw negotiations and, after learning Borussia Dortmund wanted £108million for the England international, relayed the news to Glazer.
