Swansea to make £5m Nick Powell bid

Swansea are to offer Manchester United £5 million for young midfielder Nick Powell, according to the Sunday People.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan with Wigan where he's impressed, scoring seven times in 26 appearances for the Latics, making him the club's top scorer.

Powell arrived at Manchester United from Crewe in 2012 with a reputation as being one of the best young players in the country.

Former Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired after more than 26 years in charge at Old Trafford in 2013, has previously insisted that the talented youngster is the long-term heir to legendary midfielder Paul Scholes' throne.

However according to the Sunday People Swansea are looking to capitalise on the impending clear-out at Manchester United this summer under boss David Moyes by snapping up Powell.

The Swans are said to be preparing to make a £5 million offer at the end of the season, and Moyes is reportedly open to the idea of selling up.

Norwich, Hull and Stoke were linked with Powell in January but aren't expected to follow up on their interest in the summer.

Powell could be just one of many players leaving Manchester United in the summer, with plenty of new arrivals expected too.

Moyes will reportedly be handed around £200 million to lure some big-name players to Old Trafford after a disastrous first season in charge, while veterans Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra could follow Nemanja Vidic out of the door.
