Newly crowned Emirates FA Cup winners Manchester United are still chasing 24-year-old Senegal international according to The Sun.

The report claims Louis van Gaal’s side are planning a £25m offer to sign Southampton’s powerful midfielder Sadio Mane this summer.

United have been glaringly unconvincing in their attacking play all though the campaign and it took them a late fightback on Saturday night to beat Crystal 2-1 at Wembley Stadium in a dramatic Cup final.

Wayne Rooney has struggled with injury, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are still learning their trade in the Premier League, while Memphis Depay has struggled to convince since moving from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

No doubts Mane is a proven Premier League midfield dynamo and offers both the pace and the versatility to make a significant difference to the Red Devils’ offensive play if he eventually completes his move to Old Trafford where he will link up with former St Mary’s teammate Morgan Schneiderlin.
