On Tuesday evening, Sky Italia reported Manchester United are looking for a fullback who can play on both sides and have identified Elseid Hysaj as a target.
CalcioNapoli24 now brings the latest update regarding the Red Devils’ interest in the defender, who has two years left on his contract at Napoli.
It is claimed the 25-year-old will not sign an extension and has a release clause of €55m for clubs outside Italy.
