Manchester United are reportedly told that it will take a bid of £50m to prise midfielder David Brooks away from Bournemouth this summer.

Manchester United have reportedly been told that it will take a bid of £50m to prise David Brooks away from Bournemouth this summer.

The Cherries have been forced to cash in on a number of their key players following their relegation from the Premier League last season, with Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson among those to have already left the club.

Speculation also continues to surround Joshua King and Brooks, both of whom have been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Brooks has been earmarked as a possible alternative to Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish, but the Daily Star reports that Bournemouth have demanded £50m for the 23-year-old.

That sum would surpass the fee they paid to sign Donny van de Beek from Ajax earlier this summer, while they are also expected to face competition for his signature from Leicester City.

Leicester are thought to be leading the race as things stand, with United still regarding Sancho as their top target this summer.

Brooks was limited to only nine appearances last season after missing a large chunk of the campaign through injury.
