Manchester United 'Make Contact' With Spurs Over £25 Million Harry Winks Transfer

Manchester United have reportedly made contact with Spurs over a shock £25 million move for Harry Winks.

The Red Devils are looking to bring in a new central midfield player this summer as they look to improve on a second-placed finish in the 2020/21 season.

And surprisingly, Stretty News say the club are keen on Spurs and England midfielder Winks, who they have identified as a target.

Said to be huge admirers of the 25-year-old, United have opened talks ahead of what could be a fairly straightforward deal.

Winks' future is up in the air after he fell down the pecking order at Spurs in monumental fashion. The arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg last summer restricted Winks' game-time and he made just nine starts in the Premier League last term.

Seven came under former United boss Jose Mourinho, before interim manager Ryan Mason brought him back into the fold for two games at the end of the campaign.

Winks' lack of regular football of late resulted in him losing his place in the England squad and not being considered for the European Championships.

He came on as a substitute for the Three Lions in a 4-0 win over Iceland in November but has not been in Gareth Southgate's plans since, with Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham all ahead of him.

But while United supporters want reinforcements this summer, the social media reaction makes it abundantly clear that many do not approve of a potential move for Winks:

After finishing as runners-up in the league and in the Europa League following a penalty shoot-out defeat to Villarreal, Solskjaer has promised United fans new signings.

"Of course, something will happen in the transition window. The world has become very different than 15-16 months ago, but we have to make some moves on the transfer window, but also with the team.

"It is never possible to sit back. You are constantly looking for reinforcements. Football is dynamic, so unexpected things can happen such as injuries, illness, something familiar or that someone wants to move.

"You have to take everything possible into consideration and reflection. I will never sit down and think that 'now the team is the way I want it to be', because you always see some other players or other teams doing something you want."
