Manchester United are reportedly planning to raid Barcelona this summer, with Ousmane Dembele, Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti all on their wanted list.

Manchester United are reportedly hoping to take full advantage of Barcelona's expected summer overhaul and have identified four players they would be interested in signing from the Catalan giants.

Barcelona's 8-2 Champions League quarter-final defeat to Bayern Munich last week has sparked huge speculation regarding a number of roles at the club from president Josep Maria Bartomeu to captain and talisman Lionel Messi.

Manager Quique Setien has already been sacked after only 25 games in charge, and rumoured replacement Ronald Koeman is set to embark on a summer clearout with Barcelona also needing to trim their wage bill.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claims that United could be one of the main beneficiaries of the firesale and are interested in Ousmane Dembele, Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti.

The report goes on to add that United have already enquired about Umtiti and Dembele, the latter of whom they are considering as a possible alternative to number one target Jadon Sancho.

The quartet are all thought to be available for transfer this summer and would fit Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's desire to bring in a new central defender, midfielder and winger.
