Manchester United’s hopes of signing David Brooks from Bournemouth have been given a boost.
It comes after the South Coast side admitted that all of their players are up for sale, and they will not stand in their way if another club comes in with the right price for them.
The newly relegated club have already seen Nathan Aké depart for Manchester City, and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale sign for Sheffield United, whilst Ryan Fraser left at the end of June on a free transfer after refusing to sign a short-term contract extension. Strikers Callum Wilson and Joshua King have also both been linked with moves away from the club.
23-year-old Brooks had an impressive first season with Bournemouth after joining them from Sheffield United in 2018, scoring 7 times in 33 appearances, but barely featured last campaign due to an ankle injury. Despite that, he is highly rated, and is valued at around £40 million.
