Man Utd ponder meeting buyout clause for Napoli fullback Faouzi Ghoulam

Manchester United are being linked with Napoli fullback Faouzi Ghoulam.

The Algeria international only signed a new deal earlier this season, but he is expected to be sold this summer as the Azzurri move for Benfica fullback Alejandro Grimaldo.

RAI Sport says Ghoulam has attracted enquiries from United, which are prepared to meet his €60m buyout clause.

United boss Jose Mourinho is in the market for a new left-back signing and has also been linked with Juventus defender Alex Sandro this month.

However, any fullback signing isn't expected to be made until the summer, with Mourinho willing to give Luke Shaw until then to prove his long-term worth.
