Manchester United plot move for prolific playmaker

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 19:50 Nov 28th 2016

It seems to be a case of one step forward and two steps back for Manchester United at the moment, with a convincing Europa League win against Feyenoord followed by more dropped points in the Premier League.

West Ham were the latest team to leave Old Trafford with a share of the spoils on Sunday afternoon, making it four top-flight draws in a row on home soil for the Red Devils.

DIMITRI PAYET

Unlocking opposition defences has proven difficult for Jose Mourinho’s men, so reports in the Daily Mirror that he is targeting Dimitri Payet make perfect sense.

Although the France international has so far failed to hit the heights of last season, he has still weighed in with six assists in 11 Premier League appearances:

This is halfway towards his total from the 2015/16 campaign, though the 29-year-old has some way to go in order to match his tally of nine top-flight goals.

A creative force both in open play and from dead-ball situations, Payet is an ambitious player who would relish the opportunity to develop his game at a bigger club.
