Mario Lemina

Former European champions Manchester United have reportedly been warned about their pursuit of Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina.

The Red Devils were warned by TalkSport reporter Alex Crooks who’s the radio station’s man on the south coast.

According to him, Mario Lemina came to Southampton with a big reputation but he has not been able to live up to that hype in his two years on the South Coast till date.

He also added that the Gabonese international had an agreement with Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhuttl that he will leave the club when an offer comes in for him.

Mario Lemina joined Southampton from Italian champions Juventus in the summer of 2017.

The Gabonese midfielder signed for the Saints shortly after he reached the 2017 Champions League final with Juventus.

Lemina and the Italian champions were beaten 4-1 by Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Southampton paid £18m to sign Mario Lemina from Juventus and the Saints want to recoup that money before they can sanction his sale.

Recent reports claimed that Manchester United are one of three Premier League clubs interested in Mario Lemina.

The Red Devils want to sign a new midfielder this summer following the exit of Spanish international midfield general Ander Herrera.
