Michael Carrick has already given his seal of approval for Manchester United to sign Aurelien Tchouameni. The Monaco star is one of the brightest prospects in world football and this summer clubs will be circling around the midfielder - just like they did the previous year - as his future remains up in the air.
Thre French side were able to fend off his suitors on that occasion, but it will become increasingly difficult this time around as his stock continues to rise. Manchester United were one of the teams interested in Tchouameni, as well as Chelsea and Real Madrid, as they looked to add a midfielder towards the end of the window.
But the Red Devils were unsuccessful in their attempts to sign the 22-year-old and the middle of the park still remains an issue for them almost 12 months later. That's precisely why they will come back in for the Frenchman and the news that Erik ten Hag is set to be named United's new boss has accelerated their interest in the playmaker.
The Dutchman is 'keen' on signing the playmaker and is a huge admirer of his versatility which would be a huge asset to United The report states that Monaco are open to negotiations and want between £50million and £60million for their prized asset.
But Tchouameni isn't taking any notice of the speculation with his sole focus on Monaco who he insists is a "great" club according to an interview with the club's official website. Former United midfielder Carrick has now urged the club to sign the French midfielder in a recent interview, insisting that the player is a young investment and fits into the club's playing style. Even United fans have all been urhung the club to move for the star, especially with Paul Pogba's future at Old Trafford remaining uncertain.
