The 21-year-old Austrian has emerged as one of David Moyes’ top targets as he plans ahead of the next transfer window.
After an underwhelming summer, in which Marouane Fellaini was the only notable arrival at Old Trafford, the Scot is desperate for a more fruitful second dip into the market as United manager.
Having addressed some of his midfield issues, the ex-Everton chief is now keen to bolster his defensive options.
Hinteregger is believed to have caught his eye and could be the subject of an offer this winter.
Scouts are monitoring the youngster, who was recently called up to Austria’s senior national side.
Salzburg are far from keen to lose one of their star players, but are willing to do business for a fee in the region of £6m.
Hinteregger’s current contract runs until 2017, however he is likely to jump at the opportunity to join one of Europe’s top club sides.
United are also keeping tabs on Athletic Bilbao playmaker Ander Herrera.
Moyes failed with a deadline day move for the Spaniard, but is still thought be keen to tie up a deal in the future.
