In one of the more absurd reports of the season, Manchester United have been strongly linked to Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam.

Jose Mourinho is keen to strengthen that left back area, with Luke Shaw’s future still under doubt, but the major names linked so far have been Danny Rose of Spurs and Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham. However, Record.PT have made a stunning claim by suggesting United are instead close to securing the signature of Ghoulam.

What’s more, they suggest the fee will be €60M, the Algerian’s release close.

In our opinion this is one of the most unlikely stories that we have read and we certainly don’t expect the transfer to actually happen, much less for such a staggering fee.
