TMW says United are eyeing another attacking midfielder who could allow BrunoFernandes to be rotated.
Calhanoglu is on the club's radar and he could be a cut-price option.
The Turkish star's deal is due to expire next year and talks are said to have stalled over a new deal, meaning AC Milan will have to sell this summer to avoid losing him for free.
United have made an enquiry but they are not the only club interested.
Bundesliga sides RB Leipzig and Hertha Berlin have also been linked with the 26-year-old.
