The 29-year-old has scored 18 league goals in 26 Ligue 1 appearances this term, the joint-highest in the French top-flight, and he is also attracting the likes of Paris Saint-Germain.
Ben Yedder wants to leave Monaco in search of Champions League football, and while that is available at Parc des Princes, his chances of playing regularly aren’t guaranteed at such a star-studded side.
Man Utd are currently fifth in the Premier League table with nine games to play, with only three points separating them from fourth-placed Chelsea.
With Manchester City set to miss out on next season’s Champions League due to a UEFA ban, the Red Devils have a chance of qualifying, and that could attract the French hitman.
Monaco spent £35 million on the signature of Ben Yedder last summer, and should suitors table a juicy offer, they won’t stand in the striker’s way.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to improve his squad this summer in order to mount a very strong title challenge next term, and while Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has impressed on loan, it remains to be seen if a permanent move for the Shanghai Greenland Shenhua star is on the cards.
