A Manchester United scout was in attendance as Paris Saint-Germain secured a 1-1 draw with Bordeaux on Wednesday evening. 

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Red Devils are interested in signing the duo of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marquinhos.

Ibrahimovic's contract is set to run out at the Ligue 1 champions at the end of the season and he has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but it's far from certain as to whether a deal will materialise.

The Sweden superstar, 34, may well be approaching the final stages of his career, but he's still recognised as one of the leading forwards in world football. 

The enigmatic striker has been in incredible form throughout the course of the season and once again produced the goods on Wednesday night as he netted his 36th league goal of the season.

Double transfer 

As you can see in the video below, Ibrahimovic headed home accurately to earn a point for his team. 

But Ibrahimovic wasn't the only player United were watching in France. It appears that they were also monitoring defender Marquinhos, who played the entirety of the clash. 

The 21-year-old is recognised as one of the leading young defenders in world football and would prove a major coup for the Red Devils in the pursuit of long-term success. 

Immediate focus 

For now, though, the club's immediate focus will be on securing two victories from their final two games of the season. 

Champions League football for next season is now out of the club's hands after they succumbed to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of West Ham United on Tuesday, but they will still be desperate to secure all three points against Bournemouth. 

If the Red Devils secure the points and Manchester City lose at Swansea City, then Louis van Gaal's side will be playing in Europe's elite competition next term.


FA Cup success is more possible, however, and if United overcome Crystal Palace at Wembley, then they will secure their first major trophy since the Sir Alex Ferguson era ended.  

It certainly looks set to be a huge period for United, who may well make a number of changes this summer.  

Who should Manchester United sign this summer? Have your say below!
