The 32-year-old Irishman tweeted: "Hey guys, I'm thinking about buying Manchester United! What do you think?"

Now, The Daily Star identified six potential transfer targets that McGregor would want at Old Trafford if he were United owner.

Dean Henderson would take his place as United's No 1 ahead of David de Gea, while Red Devils skipper Harry Maguire would keep his place in the starting XI.

However, the newspaper predicted that Maguire's centre-back partner would be Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who will be a free agent this summer.

McGregor is also an admirer of the 35-year-old Spaniard and Ramos has even invited the Irish superstar to a Real Madrid training session in the past.

Luke Shaw keeps his place at left-back, while The Daily Star believes that McGregor will want some Irish blood in the backline and would bring in Everton captain Seamus Coleman for right-back.

Scott McTominay would be the defensive midfielder and Paul Pogba would play a more advanced role in the midfield.

Jesse Lingard, who has been in sensational form at West Ham, would be brought back from loan and be at left wing.

Meanwhile, McGregor could opt for Wolves star Adama Traore to be United's No 1 right winger.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy would be up front in the United XI, according to the newspaper.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would also be on the chopping block as United legend Roy Keane would be appointed Red Devils boss.

The Daily Star wrote: "An entertainer in his own right, it is not hard to [imagine] him and McGregor finding common ground."
