MANCHESTER UNITED midfield ace James Garner is a target for Sheffield United.
Garner returned from a spell at Nottingham Forest, who would like him back, but the Blades have joined the race and are very keen on landing a loan deal.
Championship Blades have a strong relationship with Old Trafford having taken England keeper Dean Henderson in the past and are also willing to fund the move.
Garner, 20, would play a big part in boss Slavisa Jokanovic’s plans and could cover the Bramall Lane club in case of late bids for stars like Sander Berge.
Norwegian midfielder Berge, 23, is back on Arsenal’s radar – though not first choice – and will cost £30million after arriving from Genk 18 months ago for a fee of £22m.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils want £5m for sending centre-half Axel Tuanzebe on loan.
The powerful defender, 23, is wanted by Newcastle and Aston Villa among others and could be allowed out of Old Trafford to get game time.
But United are after £5m – to cover wages over the season and a loan fee – for Tuanzebe and do not plan to budge from that.
Tuanzebe had a previous spell at Villa in the Championship but United are asking for a premium rate to send him to a Premier League home.
United will not give up on the academy product but a year in the Prem would help – the cost also encourages Toon and Villa to weigh up his likely playing time to justify the expense.
