Leicester City set to hijack Man Utd move for 23-year-old playmaker

Leicester City are reportedly ahead of Manchester United in the race to land Bournemouth winger David Brooks.

The versatile 23-year-old, who is comfortable playing on either flank or in central midfield, has been tipped to quit Bournemouth following their relegation to the EFL Championship.

Brooks missed the majority of the 2019-20 season with a long-term injury, but he returned after the COVID-19 shutdown and did not take long to regain his form.

The Red Devils showed an interest in Brooks before he injured his ankle in 2019 and are rumoured to have made contact with his side this summer.

However, the Manchester Evening News claims that Leicester are ready to make an offer for the Welshman and are now considered the frontrunners to land him.

Leicester finished fifth in the Premier League last campaign and begin their 2020-21 term with a trip to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

Meantime, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly prepared to reconsider his stance regarding, Marcos Rojo.

Having allowed the Argentine star to represent Estudiantes on a temporary basis, it appeared that the left-sided defender had taken part in his last game for the Red Devils.

The star was also not shy in acknowledging his disappointment when having his stint back at his former club disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, ESPN claims that Marcos has channelled his frustration into making a positive impact during the pre-season campaign.

While the 30-year-old remains likely to quit Old Trafford, Ole has been left impressed by the fringe player’s attitude since returning to the roster.
