James Milner could move across Manchester, as Louis van Gaal aims to snatch him from Liverpool's grasp.
The Anfield club are keen on the English midfielder, but United have emerged as suprise candidates to sign the Manchester City player, the People reports.
Milner has become frustrated he is not a more central fixture in Manuel Pellegrini's team and he has so far failed to sign a £130,000-a-week offer from City.
Arsenal have also been linked with the versatile 29-year-old, but now United chief executive Ed Woodward has asked about his availability, the paper reports.
Robin van Persie is wanted by Italian Champions League finalists Juventus.
The Dutch striker has endured a difficult season at United, struggling for both form and fitness, and Louis van Gaal will consider selling him this summer.
Juventus are in pole position to seal the deal, according to the Sun on Sunday.
The former Arsenal player could be the second big-name striker to leave the club, as Chelsea are already in talks to sign loan forward Radamel Falcao.
