Manchester United have already made contact over the potential signing of Bordeaux attacking midfielder Adam Ounas.

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Red Devils are hoping to secure the 19-year-old's signature in this transfer window. 

Ounas, who has represented France at Under-20 level, has enjoyed a fine season in Ligue 1 and looks set for a bright future in the game.

Indeed, the youngster scored six goals in 28 appearances for the club as they finished in 11th place in France's elite division. 

It won't be easy for Jose Mourinho and co. to land him, though, as his current deal at Bordeaux doesn't expire until 2019. 

Ounas deal

In fact, the same report from the Mirror claims that it could take a big offer to tempt the club to sell to United, while it has also been documented that the Old Trafford outfit have made enquiries to the player's representatives. 

There most definitely appears to be a long way to go in the saga at this stage, but it's safe to say that Ounas would represent a significant coup for the club in the pursuit of long-term success. 

At 19, Ounas still has so much to learn but, as you can see in the video below, he's extremely talented.

There's also the small matter of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's future. The enigmatic striker has long been linked to United, but a deal has yet to materialise. 

The revered forward may well be 34-years-old, but he's still recognised as one of the leading strikers in world football. He struck a brilliant 38 goals in Ligue 1 last season - 17 more than any other player in the division. 

Ibrahimovic recently insisted that stories regarding his future 'excited' him but revealed that he will not be heading to Sweden ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

"I want to still write a lot of stories," he said, as per Sky Sports. "I get excited when I see them because I want to see who is making up the best story.

"When I'm tired of it, I'll let you know where I will go.

"I'm still not interested in the Allsvenskan [Swedish league]. I'm too good for the Allsvenskan."

It's certainly going to represent an interesting summer for all involved at Old Trafford.
