Report: Manchester United plot £30m bid for Grzegorz Krychowiak, Everton also keen

Manchester United are reportedly readying a move for Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak.

According to The Sun, Manchester United are ready to make a £30m bid for Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak this summer.

The Red Devils again failed to qualify for the Champions League, and after two summers of heavy spending, it seems that a third is on the horizon, with the United squad still lacking real quality throughout the team.

Central midfield is one area which may need strengthening, as Michael Carrick is out of contract this summer and German star Bastian Schweinsteiger has suffered an injury-hit and ultimately underwhelming first season in the Premier League.

Now, The Sun report that United have turned their attention to Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak, and look poised to make a £30m move for the Pole.

Krychowiak, 26, was virtually unheard of when he joined Sevilla from Reims back in the summer of 2014, but he has now established himself as one of the most dominant holding midfielders in Europe.

Strong in the tackle, powerful on the ball and composed in possession, Krychowiak has been a key part of Sevilla's last two Europa League title wins, and played a major role in their 3-1 win over Liverpool earlier this month.

Now set to play a for Poland at Euro 2016, Krychowiak will be in demand this summer, and United are allegedly hoping to steal a march on their rivals with a £30m offer.

It's also claimed that Everton have been watching Krychowiak with a view to a possible move, but with a £30m bid coming in from United, the Toffees appear to be priced out of the race - leaving United to push through a move this summer.
