The latest report has claimed that French Ligue 1 outfit Lille player Boubakary Soumare is more interested in a move to Man United than Arsenal.

North London outfit and Man United have both indicated interest in the French midfielder but he seems to have his choice on where he wants to go already and that is the Old Trafford.

Two English clubs, Wolves and Newcastle United are reported to have made attempts to snap up the services of the 21-year-old but he refused and decided to remain in France.

Reports have also revealed that Italian Serie A outfits AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Napoli also made efforts to hijack the deal for Boubakary Soumare but were rejected as well.

Now it is understood that Boubakary Soumare wants to leave France and a move to Man United will be the best destination, not minding the competition in the team, knowing that the Red Devils have Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba, and Bruno Fernandes in the team at the moment.

Meanwhile, he could come in as a replacement for French midfielder Paul Pogba who is feared to be close to the exit door after recently fuelling speculation over his future with Real Madrid claim.
