Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is interested in signing for a Premier League club this summer, MySportDab reports.
And he ‘loves’ the rumours to Manchester United.
Manchester United are keen to at least one midfielder this summer, if Paul Pogba stays or leaves Old Trafford.
They are still interested in Jude Bellingham, the 16-year-old Birmingham City star has shown some impressive performances in the English Championship this season.
United are also linked with Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez and West Ham star Declan Rice.
Manchester United have been linked with Partey as well after the Ghana international impressed under Diego Simeone.
According to African football expert Saddick Adams, Partey wants to move to the Premier League and loves the links to Manchester United.
“A close source to Thomas Partey informed me the player doesn’t plan to sign a new contract at Atletico and he won’t mind a move to the Premiership,” he tweeted.
“The source also said that Partey loves the United link. Deal could surprise everyone.”
Yesterday, a close source to Thomas Partey told me the player doesn’t want to extend his stay at Atletico and is favouring a move to the Premiership. And that loves the United link. Deal could even be sooner than expected.

MySportDab understands if the Red Devils sign Partey this summer he could replace Nemanja Matic, who looks set to leave the club soon.
The Serbia man has played well at Old Trafford since his switch from Chelsea under former coach Jose Mourinho.
But Matic looks close to the end of his career and United are now planning for the future.
Manchester United are not the only club linked with Partey, Arsenal also interested in the 26-year-old.
Arsenal Coach Mikel Arteta is eager to improve his midfield options although funds could be a problem at the Emirates.
