Manchester United are in discussions with the representatives of 19-year-old central midfielder Eric-Junior Dina Ebimbe, according to a report in France.
RMC Sport claim Dina Ebimbe is a firm target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is intent on revamping his United squad with talented youngsters.
United are in need of a commanding central midfielder and Dina Ebimbe has been impressing on loan with Ligue 2 side Le Havre.
The PSG starlet is under contract in the French capital until 2023, but currently enjoying his time on loan with 18 starts in Le Havre’s 20 league games so far this season.
As per the current arrangement, Ebimbe will spend another 12 months on loan at Le Harve if they can win promotion to Ligue 1.
That may well pose a complication for United, who are speaking to the player with a view to a summer move for the midfielder, who may well be seen as a replacement for Paul Pogba, whose future is in doubt at Old Trafford.
The Norwegian said: “I think our fans know what we have started on and I’ve been trusted to do that job and that rebuild doesn’t go one way all the time. It doesn’t just go ‘we’re doing great’, ‘we’re doing great’, I’ve said it so many times.
“The foundation has to be laid and the culture has to be properly set and laid down and this group is a good core of players that believe in themselves and what we’re doing to carry us forward with signings and players coming back.”
