Predominantly a right full-back the Croatia international has made 28 appearances and claimed five assists, helping Diego Simeone’s men into the final of the Europa League.

United may well be looking for a cheaper alternative to put competition on Antonio Valencia, but his versatility could prove crucial to Mourinho.

Liverpool contacted Atletico to check on the January availability of Vrsaljko, according to the Corrierre dello Sport.

The La Liga club though were not keen on selling the former Genoa and Sassuolo, who signed for £14.5million in 2016.
