Manchester United is known to target the best players in the world, as the club is one of the biggest in Europe. Man United is planning to have a big squad change this summer as they look to sell many players. Manchester United's team next season could be without the likes of Casemiro, Varane, Eriksen, and Martial. The club is looking for younger players to join the squad next season, but many Man United fans are surprised to see the club linked to a player who plays in a team that is fighting relegation in the Premier League.

TalkSPORT reports that Manchester United is looking at a key player from Luton Town. Man United is considering a surprise move for Ross Barkley in the summer. Barkley is 30 years old and is seen as a potential replacement for Casemiro, who is likely to leave Man United this summer. Barkley and Luton Town are 18th in the Premier League table with 20 points. Luton Town is clear of Burnley and Sheffield United, who both have 13 points. The team is only one point below Everton, who is 17th with 21 points.

Despite being in that position, Luton Town has shown great football and has given battles to the toughest teams in the Premier League. They drew 1-1 at home to Liverpool, lost by one to Man City [1-2] at home, and also lost by one to Arsenal [3-4] at home. Barkley has arguably been Luton Town's best player this season, scoring three goals and assisting three in the Premier League. Barkley signed from OGC Nice last summer.
