Man United reportedly keeping tabs on West Ham’s Tomas Soucek/Reds yet to make decision over Cavani’s contract

Several updates concerning Manchester United’s plans on the personnel front have surfaced online this week.

Man United eyeing Soucek

The first concerns a potential transfer target for the Red Devils.

Tomas Soucek of course joined West Ham on a permanent basis from Slavia Prague over the summer, after an impressive six-month loan stint with the Hammers.

Soucek has since gone on to become one of the Hammers’ standout stars, as they push towards a European berth for next season.

Despite playing in a deep midfield role throughout much of his stint in London, Soucek has managed to chip in with eight goals in 23 Premier League outings this term.

And now, amid his impressive start to life in England, the Czech international appears to be attracting interest from one of the Premier League’s heavyweights.

According to Football Insider, Manchester United are keeping tabs on Soucek ahead of the summer transfer window, with the Red Devils said to be one of a number of clubs monitoring the midfielder’s progress.

Man United yet to decide on Cavani’s deal

Elsewhere, an update on the future of Edinson Cavani has also been forthcoming.

The Uruguayan joined United on a free transfer over the summer, after his PSG contract expired.

And Cavani has since established himself as a key member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, scoring some crucial goals in the Premier League.

However, the striker’s contract, as things stand, is set to run out in the summer.

Man United do have an option to extend the deal by another year. But, according to the Manchester Evening News, those in charge at Old Trafford have not yet triggered the extension having actually not decided whether or not they intend to keep hold of Cavani beyond the summer.
