Manchester United have reignited their interest in signing Ghanaian defender, Mohammed Salisu from Real Valladolid.

Salisu, 21, who has been a revelation in the La Liga and has been on the radar of top clubs in Europe.

However, Everton have also joined the race to sign the Ghanaian who has a release clause of £10.8million.

The Ghanaian also has an offer on the table from Ligue 1 side Rennes but prefers a move to the Premier League this summer.

He tops the list of LaLiga defenders for the most clearances with a whopping 136 already this season.

Left-footed Salisu is under contract with Real Valladolid until the summer of 2022.

Spanish side Atletico Madrid, Newcastle United, Southampton and Norwich City have also been linked to the center-half.
