The defender is 33 and currently plays for Swedish side Helsingborgs.
He had an earlier spell at Wigan Athletic and spent the last five years with Russian side Krasnodar.
Bristol City teenager Antoine Semenyo has been watched by United scouts, according to TeamTalk.
The 18-year-old is on loan at Newport County in League Two.
United are claimed to be one of a number of teams tracking the young winger’s progress.
This is more like it. Slovakian centre-back Milan Skriniar is claimed to be high on Jose Mourinho’s transfer wishlist,
Skriniar has helped Inter win both of their Champions League matches this season, in which he shut down Harry Kane as they beat Tottenham.

Richardson is just 15-years-old and is being tipped to follow former Black Cats ‘keeper Jordan Pickford to stardom.
United are claimed to be keen to get in early and pay just £500,000 compensation to sign Richardson now.
