BREAKING: Mourinho willing to pay £88m for Barcelona star


MANCHESTER UNITED are ready to break the bank for Barcelona star Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

The Germany international has cemented his place as Ernesto Valverde’s No 1 at the Nou Camp.

Ter Stegen has kept 18 clean sheets this season, second to only Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak in La Liga.

And according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, Ter Stegen is attracting interest from United.

They say Jose Mourinho is willing to pay £88m (€100m) for the 26-year-old this summer if David De Gea quits Old Trafford.

De Gea is a long-term target for Real Madrid, with the Spanish giants desperate to replace Keylor Navas at the Bernabeu.

Real are readying a summer-shake up, with club president Florentino Perez open to axing numerous stars.

Don Balon add that Barca key man Luis Suarez has discovered United’s plan to land Ter Stegen.

They say the former Liverpool star knows the offer would be tempting for Barca to part with their goalkeeper.

United are back in action on Saturday afternoon, with the Red Devils facing Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley (5:15pm kick-off).

Mourinho is looking to win his third major trophy at Old Trafford.
