Reporting from Krakow, IBTimes UK takes a look at some of the hotly discussed Euro stars being targeted by Manchester United this summer.
He might be concentrating on taking Croatia as far as possible in the Euros, but back home the playmaker is the subject of a great deal of transfer talk. Some outlets are claiming that United have already agreed to sign the star, bringing him in after the tournament is over.
Other reports are saying that Paris Saint Germain are willing to fight the Red Devils for Modric's signature, and after his performance for Croatia in their first group stage game, his price is only going to go up as Sir Alex Ferguson considers whether he's worth the money.
Young and Spanish, and a product of Barcelona's youth side, Alba has it all going for him, and though he is apparently a target for his old club, United are said to be chasing as well. With the 23 year old just starting out for the Spain senior line up, his performance on Sunday night against Italy, including a big chance on goal in the 74th minute, have left him in high demand with a number of clubs. And United would do well to snare the left-back as a long term replacement for Patrice Evra.
Cabaye admitted that he was aware of United's interest last week, and he's certainly one of the players to watch for France during the tournament. Last night his performances in the midfield helped France to come back from behind and salvage a point from England, and with Sir Alex Ferguson looking for more creativity in the middle of the park, the Newcastle breakthrough star could be just the ticket for the Scot to build on the already purchased Shinji Kagawa.
The speculation surrounding Lewandowski has wound Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke up to the point where he is refusing to discuss rumours linking the star striker to Manchester United. But his performance for Poland in the opening match, including scoring their only goal against Greece to draw the match, has put clubs on alert to his services. A new striker will no doubt be considered by Ferguson in the summer, with Michael Owen released and Dimitar Berbatov close to an exit. And the 23 year old would pose big competition for the likes of Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney.
