River Plate are believed to want between €16million-€20m (£13.75m-£17m) for De La Cruz, according to TNT Sports Argentina.

De La Cruz, 24, has scored once and assisted three goals in 11 league games for River Plate in 2021.

But a return of 19 goals and 28 assists in 128 games for River Plate has earned him international recognition, and he has won eight caps for Uruguay.

He could join his compatriot Edinson Cavani at United, which may help the striker feel more at home after reports claimed he felt homesick earlier in the year.

United signed another Uruguayan in Facundo Pellistri last summer, who arrived on deadline day for a fee of £9m.

But the 19-year-old winger struggled for game time before being loaned to Alaves in January, where he made 12 appearances in La Liga.

A deal for De La Cruz may have to wait until Jadon Sancho’s transfer is finalised.

Personal terms have been agreed with the England star and the Red Devils are believed to be close to agreeing a fee.

And Sancho has reportedly told his England team-mates that he is moving to Old Trafford.

But Borussia Dortmund want United to increase their offer by £8.5m, taking the total to £80m.
