The English Premier League outfit, Man United have been searching for an alternative for their top target, Jadon Sancho as they seek to land the player before the end of the summer transfer window.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identified the England international as his major target and was desperate to land him but the club failed to reach an agreement with the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund over a deal and a winger is set to remain at the club for another season.
This has forced the Red Devils into making moves for another alternative and they are reportedly considering the signature of Bournemouth star, David Brooks this summer window.

The Sport Witness reports that the Red Devils are serious in the deal for David Brooks who plays as a right-winger for Bournemouth.
However, David Brooks cannot boast of the same profile as Jadon Sancho as he scored only one goal in nine appearances after returning from a serious ankle injury
David Brooks has been tipped to be a very interesting player but his injury stopped him from helping Bournemouth from being relegated and it is expected that he will remain in the topflight with another club next season.
Man United named in five-team list of suitors for Bournemouth star
Bournemouth star David Brooks will be the hottest player of the moment in the English Premier League as five clubs are reported to be interested in his chase.
Man United, Tottenham, Everton, Leicester City, and Liverpool are names amongst the club that are interested in the 23-year-old Wales international
It is understood that topflight clubs still have until Friday by 5 pm to complete deals within the domestic league which means a move from the Vitality Stadium is still very possible.

It is the wish of Bournemouth that David Brooks remain at the club but they could be forced to do so if any of the suitors are able to step forward with his £40 million asking price.
The fact that Bournemouth are already relegated to the Championship makes it very difficult to keep a player as David Brooks will prefer to remain in the Premier League.
So far, Bournemouth have lost most of their stars, including Nathan Ake, Aaron Ramsdale, and Callum Wilson since the end of last season and they are already preparing to leave.
Howbeit, it is unlikely that Man United will make a move for David Brooks again as they have enough options in their midfield, with the signing of Donny van de Beek from Ajax.

Man United have been linked with the signature of Bournemouth stars David Brook and Josh King but there is yet to be any development on their interest with few days left to the end of the summer transfer window.
It has been a very long summer transfer window for the Red Devils for failing to secure the services of most of their targets. Ajax star Donny van de Beek is the only major signing made by Man United this summer window despite being linked with a long list of names.

However, the Manchester Evening News report that it is unlikely for the Red Devils to sign Josh King and David Brooks especially now that they are desperate to conclude a deal before the summer transfer window.
David Brooks scored seven goals in 33 appearances for the Cherries in the first season but spent was out to injury in most part of the last campaign. That might have limited the number of his suitors and might have convinced the Red Devils not to make a move for him.
The need for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the moment is a winger and a defender as that has been very difficult to come by especially with the rejection of their bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
Man United take the front row in race for Bournemouth star
Man United are reported to be leading in the race for the signature of David Brooks as they hope to add him to tier books before the end of the summer transfer market.
Manchester Evening News reports that a deal could be sealed in the coming weeks with the 23-year old also keen on a bigger opportunity following an impressive and consistent performance in the topflight for the past two seasons.
Leicester City have also shown interest in the signature of David Brooks but they seem to be abandoning his chase after securing the signature of Cengiz from the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma to make Man United favourites.

With less than 2-years left to the end of his current contract, Bournemouth could take advantage of that to cash in from his sale as they are now aware that the Red Devils are desperate for new players despite winning their Carabao Cup game on Tuesday night.
Following their defeat in the opening game of the Premier League, Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that his team must do more in the recruitment of players before the summer window ends.
The Red Devils have only been able to add Donny van de Beek to their books this transfer window.
