Man Utd switch sights to Leicester attacker Harvey Barnes

Manchester United are tracking Leicester City attacker Harvey Barnes.

The Sun says United are keeping tabs on Barnes as a possible transfer alternative to Jadon Sancho.

The 22-year-old attacker has had an impressive season so far and made his debut for England in a 3-0 win over Wales in October.

United's scouting department have been impressed with the Foxes ace, and have been watching him closely.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also a fan of Barnes, and has been keeping a close watch on his progress.

And United could be tempted into making a move, with Borussia Dortmund still refusing to lower their £100m-plus asking price for Sancho.

It is understood Leicester value Barnes at around £60m, but would refuse any approaches for one of their star men in January.
