Manchester United are reportedly prepared to offer Real Madrid €15 million for the services of Lucas Vazquez.

The 29-year-old came through the ranks at Real Madrid and has gone on to feature in 218 matches since the 2010-11 season.

According to Defensa Central, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for players to compete for positions in the wide areas, and Lucas Vazquez fits the bill.

The Spain international can play anywhere on the right flank and has even adapted into a serviceable right-back. This means he could provide good competition to Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
