Man Utd have opened talks with Valencia over the signing of £30m Carlos Soler, according to reports in the Sun.
The Spain U21 international midfielder, 20, is currently tied to the La Liga club until the summer of 2021.
Carlos Soler a £75m buy-out clause, though Los Che will likely negotiate for a lower fee.
Jose Mourinho is keen to add midfield cover after seeing his side deprived of their talisman Paul Pogba due to injury.
Soler has played a key role in Valencia’s red hot start to the season and featured in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Sevilla to keep them second, four points behind leaders Barcelona.
Speaking about his future earlier this year, Soler said: “That’s something that’s done by the club, by agents.
“When I go out on the pitch to play, I’m not thinking: ‘Wow, I’ve got a really high buy-out clause and I’ve got a lot of responsibility on my shoulders’.”
United are back in action on Saturday when Mourinho’s men host Tottenham in the Premier League.
