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.
