Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward makes initial contact over possible Alassane Plea signing from Borussia Monchengladbach, according to Sky Germany.
Plea was enjoying a fantastic season in the Bundesliga before COVID-19 halted proceedings back in March. The striker had notched seven goals and eight assists in the leagues.
The 27-year-old’s play did not go unnoticed with a whole host of clubs interested including North-London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
But it is United who have made contact with the player’s representatives according to Sky in Germany, in a bid to see if he would be open to joining the Red Devils for the 2020/2021 campaign.
However, the Frenchman will be focussing on the return of German football this weekend after a long time out, as his side line-up against Eintracht Frankfurt.
