Having seen their approach of signing big-name players on extortionate wages produce only a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League, Manchester United have understandably taken a different tack to the transfer market this summer.
The Red Devils have already signed Daniel James from Swansea and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace, and according to the latest reports, the club are intent on continuing to sign younger players ahead of the new season.
Now, Sportske Novosti claim that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are interested in Dinamo Zagreb’s sensation Dani Olmo and that the club are willing to pay £35.7m for the 21-year-old.

After hearing the news linking them to their latest target, United fans took to Twitter to air their opinion on the matter and many were left reasonably excited by Olmo’s potential arrival at Old Trafford.
Fans of the Manchester side pointed to the midfielder’s performances with Spain at the recent U21 European Championships and underlined that he would add something unique to the United team.
Indeed, many admitted that they were encouraged by the club’s new approach at looking to sign high-potential players and praised the scouting team for targeting players like Olmo.
