Moussa Sissoko is being lined up for a shock move to Manchester United, according to the Mirror.
The marauding Newcastle midfielder was arguably France’s best player during their Euro 2016 final defeat to Portugal at the weekend, and the club are now bracing themselves for a barrage of interest and offers for one of their star men.
Sissoko has been the subject of speculation ever since the January transfer window, and this has only intensified following the clubs relegation to the Championship at the end of last season.
With Manchester United now being managed by Jose Mourinho, they have already been making waves in the transfer market to get the Portuguese man his squad in place, and it appears Sissoko might well be next.
Newcastle themselves have moved to strengthen already, with the additions of Matt Ritchie and Dwight Gayle their two star buys so far, while Rafa Benitez has also strengthened elsewhere. The Spaniard might well be tempted to cash in on Sissoko, if the price is right for the club.
