Manchester United have called Leon Goretzka's agent over a potential transfer this summer.

It comes as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to strengthen his options in midfield after making the position a priority in the transfer window.

There is also growing uncertainty over Paul Pogba's situation as he enters the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.

Many of the club's players have been at the Euros this summer and will need an extended break before returning to pre-season.

But that has not stopped United from closing in on their preferred transfer targets as soon as possible and the arrival of Jadon Sancho has already been earmarked when the tournament is over.

Regardless, Solskjaer is keen to move on to his next targets and Goretzka is firmly one on his list.

The Germany international has also entered the final year of his contract, much like Pogba.

And the Red Devils have made enquiries to his agent over his situation, according to Bild via Sport Witness.

The former Schalke star has become an integral part of the team at the Allianz Arena but Bayern are aware that his contract situation could see a repeat of what happened with David Alaba.

Despite the Austria international also being an important member of the squad, the defender's terms were allowed to dwindle into its final six months and he will sign for Real Madrid for free.

However, Goretzka loves being at Bayern Munich and would prefer to stay if that was the option.

But the 26-year-old is also open to offers if an agreement cannot be reached with the Bundesliga champions.

If United pursue a move for the German, it would surely mean that Pogba will be on his way out of the club.

After a number of years where his agent Mino Raiola has threatened his client's departure, he might now finally get his way but Solskjaer does not want to lose the Frenchman.

Who should United sign in the transfer window? Have your say in the comments below.

Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are long-term admirers but whether they can afford a financial package to take the midfielder remains to be seen.

Barcelona, as well as Real, are also interested in signing Goretzka this summer as some of the big clubs around Europe ramp up their efforts.

The Bochum-born star has been out of the standout performers for Bayern over the years since his free transfer in 2018 from Schalke.

United are also interested in Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga, who has been valued at £85m.
