Man United Transfer News: Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina gives a massive transfer boost to Manchester United with his statement.
Manchester United are looking for midfield reinforcements this summer, as departure of key players from this department has compelled Manchester United to fortify the squad.
Thus, Manchester United among all the prospects were also considering to sign the services of Mario Lemina from Southampton. The 26-year-old, who joined Saints from Juventus two years ago is under the radar of several Premier league clubs but only Manchester United are ready to reach the demanding price.
Although, the speculations have further fueled since Lemina was left out of Southampton’s traveling squad for their pre-season training camp in Austria earlier this week, with Ralph Hasenhuttl prepared to move the player on.
Moreover, The midfielder told France Football he has known for some time that he wants to leave Southampton.
“I am physically preparing myself at the training centre, with a few other players including Charlie Austin and Jordy Clasie,” Lemina said.
“I did not accompany the team in training in agreement with the coach. He wants to build his group with the players who want to stay at the club, so he left me out. As early as last year, I had set my conditions: I wanted to go elsewhere this summer.”
The player has further mentioned that he prefers to remain in England, but did not rule a move outside the country.
“The best for me would be to stay there, but I do not close the door to any club, no country, today after four months of injury, I do not target anything in particular. I aspire to play in the biggest clubs, now we will see what I will propose.”
Now, it is upon the Red Devils to hire the player ahead of next season or not.

If Manchester United sign Mario Lemina instead of other targets , you know we messed up again! It's a cheap choice of no real quality. There is no point to compare him again with exising players. We need to up our game level and not to go for a quick fix! #mufc #Transfers

Bruno Fernandes is and must be a priority for Manchester United @ManUtd . Mario Lemina is not what we are looking for! Athletic , powerful , kind of Tottenham's Sissoko player but inconsistent! Don't get fooled, we need some real quality if Pogba goes! #mufc #Transfers pic.twitter.com/3LOghGHPCb

Arsenal target Mario Lemina has been given permission to speak to Manchester United. Lemina has previously impressed Arsenal scouts and scored highly on the club’s analytical data matrix but Wenger instead prioritised deals for Alexandre Lacazette and Kolasinac. [@thetimes]
