United to move for Wissam Ben Yedder

Manchester United are reportedly looking into a potential move for Wissam Ben Yedder with Romelu Lukaku likely to head through the exit door this summer.

Ben Yedder recently enjoyed a stellar season with Sevilla where he notched 30 goals across all competitions and this has captured the attention of United scouts.

According to France Football, the Red Devils believe they have a good chance of landing the Frenchman this summer after knowing of the relatively affordable £36m release clause on his contract.

The same outlet claims that Lukaku's future with the Red Devils is hanging in the balance amid the reported interest from Inter Milan, who are managed by ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

The Belgium international has publicly hinted that he could pursue a fresh challenge this summer but so far, there has been no agreement between United and the Nerazzurri.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are said to value Lukaku at around £80m and that remains a potential stumbling block for the Nerazzurri, who are reluctant to pay more than £60m.
