Edinson Cavani is all set to leave Manchester United when his contract with them runs down at the end of the current season.

The Uruguayan’s departure, and other issues, will force the Premier League side to look for a new striker in the summer and one of the options to have reportedly emerged is Alexander Isak.

Earlier this week, Noticias de Gipuzkoa stated the Red Devils have been ‘closely’ following the Real Sociedad star. The Manchester club’s interest in the 22-year-old is also discussed by other Spanish outlets.

Mundo Deportivo claim Liverpool have made an unofficial offer through an intermediary to the La Liga side.

The same also report mentions Manchester United and in a short update, it’s said the Old Trafford club have become the new interested club ‘to come to the fore in taking over the services’ of the Sweden international.

Over at AS, they explain the big English clubs, United, Liverpool and Arsenal, have the La Liga man on their agenda for the summer and are ‘literally fighting’ for his signature.

Real Sociedad, for their part, are beginning to accept they must listen to offers they will receive for Isak.

There are two reasons for this and the first one is to do with potential offers the Spanish club could received after this campaign. An interested party paying his €90m release clause also remains possible in the next window.

The second reason is due to the word La Real president Jokin Aperribay gave to the player last summer. The Real Sociedad chief had informed Isak the club will be more flexible to negotiate his sale, should they receive a proposal from a ‘powerful club’.

These reports indicate Manchester United are in the mix to sign Isak, but the feeling is their interest isn’t firm or concrete, when compared to that of Arsenal and Liverpool.
