Manchester United have reportedly made an enquiry to Borussia Dortmund over the availability of defender Marc Bartra.

United have made just one summer signing so far, following the arrival of central defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica, but are now chasing another it would seem.

Jose Mourinho is building from the back again as he looks create a United squad capable of challenging on multiple fronts next season, particularly with versatile defender Marcos Rojo sidelined for the rest of 2017 with a knee injury.

Catalan journalist Gerard Romero reported in the Sun on Sunday that United have contacted Dortmund to ask about Bartra’s situation.

The 26-year-old suffered a broken wrist when three bombs exploded near Dortmund’s coach before their Champions League clash with Monaco earlier this year.

But the Spain international, who began his career at Barcelona, recovered to help Dortmund win the German Cup and it would likely take a hefty to fee for the Bundesliga giants to consider letting one of their key men leave.
