There has now been a suggestion that United are prepared to re-enter the race for the Polish international, who's likely to command a fee of around £32m.

However, it's clear they will face some stern competition, with Premier League rivals Spurs believed to be leading the race.

Italian journalist Ciro Venerato told Neapolitan broadcaster Radio Kiss Kiss: "As for Milik , the intermediary told me that they are in informal talks with Leipzig, Man City, United, Fulham and Tottenham.

"The latter is the most reliable path, but the terms requested by Napoli do not convince Mourinho."

Milik is aid to be a boyhood Man Utd supporter.

Meanwhile, United's chase for Jadon Sancho appears to be reaching a long-awaited conclusion.

The Daily Star reports that United are set to launch a take-it-or-leave-it offer worth £90m this week.

Leeds, having missed out on a deal for James on a dramatic final day of last year's January transfer window, are still keen on the Welshman, and are seemingly monitoring his situation closely.

However, The Athletic now claims that Graham Potter, who oversaw the 22-year old's breakthrough at Swansea City "would relish" the chance to secure a reunion.
