Manchester United are looking to add Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Lemar to their squad in the summer as they seek to strengthen their squad ahead of a potential Champions League campaign.
According to ESPN, the French midfielder's representatives met with United last week and negotiations could develop further when the league resumes after the coronavirus outbreak.
The report claims Lemar feels he is not suited to Diego Simeone's pragmatic style of play and will look to make a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano in the coming months.
Lemar has over three years left on his current contract and he is expected to command some decent sum for Atleti should they find a suitor interested in his services.
The player has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool too and it’s clear that he would like a summer move after failing to spark at Atleti; something that has seen him reduced to a team player.
Lemar was one of the most coveted players during his time at Monaco where he bagged 14 goals and provided 18 assists in Ligue One in the 2016-17 season; a season his team lifted the title.
Despite being linked with a move to some of the biggest clubs in Europe, the winger eventually chose to join Atletico Madrid in 2018 in a deal worth 70 million euros.
The 24-year old who has featured in 24 Laliga games this season has only provided three goals and six assists since his move to the Spanish capital.
