Manchester United have made a move to sign Marseille goalkeeper Ahmadou Dia, according to reports in France.

The 20-year-old has caught the eye of the Red Devils despite not being part of the Ligue 1 side’s first-team squad.

French outlet L’Equipe (via Get French Football) claim the stopper has yet to agree to a switch to England but that he has informed Marseille Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta.

United want to keep current number 1 David de Gea but the club and player are yet to agree a new contract with the Spaniard’s deal expiring in 2020.

David de Gea’s current deal expires in just over a year.

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with the 28-year-old who’s thought to be looking for £350,000-per-week.

Dia is not being viewed as an immediate starter at Old Trafford but that he could learn and develop alongside fellow goalkeepers Sergio Romero and veteran Lee Grant.
