The Red Devils are expected to delve into the transfer market this winter, with David Moyes thought to be keen to add greater creativity to his side.
Moves for Ander Herrera and Cesc Fabregas ended in disappointment over the summer, but the Scot is still thought to be looking for solutions to his side’s problems in the final third.
Cabella has emerged as one of his top targets thanks to a series of fine displays in Ligue 1.
The 23-year-old is regarded as one of French football’s top rising stars and has been tipped to break into the senior French side in the not too distant future.
Montpellier are aware that interest in the playmaker is high, and have previously attempted to scare off potential suitors with a shocking £100m valuation.
However, United are believed to value him at around £15m.
Arsenal are also keen, but it with Arsene Wenger having snapped up Mesut Ozil on deadline day, he may opt against spending big once the transfer window re-opens.
Could Remy Cabella add the spark Manchester United need? Or is Shinji Kagawa perfectly capable?
