Matuidi is currently on duty with the French national team at Euro 2016, with it reported he was granted a day off to sort out his future.

Monday was also Jose Mourinho's first official day at work as United manager, while the midfielder's agent is Mino Raiola, who has played a part in helping the Red Devils clinch deals for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Matuidi would immediately strengthen United's midfield, and while 29-years-old, has a few years left in him at the very top of his game.

His athleticism and tough tackling will bring a dynamism in the middle of the pitch they often lacked last season. 

Fans may harbour dreams of re-signing Paul Pogba, but bringing in Matuidi would be cheaper and nearly as effective.
