Manchester United are looking away from a possible summer deal for Darwin Nunez due to the huge outlay required, ESPN reports.

The Benfica striker has been heavily linked with the club, but it has recently emerged that Liverpool have verbally agreed a £86m deal for him.

Instead of entering a bidding war, it appears United are prepared to look elsewhere with their main priority being the midfield.

Erik ten Hag has set his sights on landing Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona. United recently failed with an opening bid for his services.

They are prepared to come with a renewed approach and there is growing optimism that they can prise him away from the Catalans.

Meanwhile, Wolves' Ruben Neves and PSV's Ibrahim Sangare are among other midfielders on the club's radar for the summer.

United are yet to make a signing for next season, but it has been claimed that they are close to wrapping up a deal for Ajax winger Antony.
