Transfer Talk: Red Devils plot Saint-Maximin swoop
Manchester United are reportedly considering a shock move for Allan Saint-Maximin.
The Newcastle winger, 25, has made an eye-catching start to the season, grabbing two assists during the Magpies' thrilling 3-3 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.
United have been linked with a number of wingers — including Ajax star Antony and Chelsea's Christian Pulisic — as Erik ten Hag looks to revamp his attack.
And reports in France say Saint-Maximin is another target they are considering.
The Red Devils kick-started their season with an impressive 2-1 win over Liverpool last night thanks to strikes from forwards Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.
Adding the French flyer to their ranks would further bolster Ten Hag’s options, with club chiefs said to be attracted by his "explosive profile".
It is indicated that United are not ruling out an approach for the former Nice ace before the transfer window closes.
But as it stands the arrival of Antony could be the more realistic possibility.
The Brazil international has agreed personal terms for a switch to Old Trafford, according to The Sun.
The 22-year-old was left out of Ajax’s squad to face Sparta Rotterdam at the weekend after reportedly not turning up for training.
