Man Utd plan £30M bid to bring back Danny Drinkwater

Manchester United are ready to spend big to bring Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater back to Old Trafford.

The Sun says Drinkwater is a shock £30million January transfer target for Jose Mourinho.

The Manchester United boss spent his £150million summer budget on Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitarayan, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic came in on a free.

But there is still money for Mourinho to chase Leicester and England ace Drinkwater.

And it could mean a return home for the Manchester-born midfielder to a club that rejected him four years ago.

Drinkwater is at Old Trafford on Saturday with Leicester for the lunchtime game.

He was at the club from the age of nine but never made a first team appearance.
