Pellegri was just 16 years old when Monaco paid an eye-watering £18million to sign him from Genoa in 2018 after scoring three goals in nine Serie A appearances.

However, Pellegri has scored just once in six matches across three seasons in Ligue 1.

He didn’t make a single appearance in the 19/20 campaign due to injury.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apparently believes Pellegri can help bring the good times back to Old Trafford.

United are keen to sign a new striker with doubts emerging over Odion Ighalo’s future.

Shanghai Shenhua are said to have softened their stance over an extension to his loan.

But they could yet demand a £20million permanent deal as part of the agreement.

That’s led to Solskjaer registering his interest in RB Leipzig poacher Timo Werner, who has also been linked with Liverpool and Chelsea.

Meanwhile, United still want to strengthen on the flanks with Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

But Solskjaer has reportedly opted against a deal for Philippe Coutinho, who has no future at Barcelona once his Bayern Munich loan ends.
