Manchester United handed boost in £40m chase for Bournemouth star David Brooks

Bournemouth will not stand in the way of any players seeking moves away this summer – potentially opening the door for Manchester United to seal a swoop for David Brooks.

The Old Trafford outfit are understood to be interested in making a £40million move for the Welsh playmaker after talks reached an impasse with Borussia Dortmund over Jadon Sancho. 

Despite Bournemouth insisting they are under no pressure to offload stars following their relegation, the club’s new boss Jason Tindall has now admitted that each of them have a price. 

Sportsmail understands that the south coast club are yet to receive any official contact from United for Brooks, although the versatile attacker is one of a number of options currently under consideration. 

Brooks is valued at a similar price to Nathan Ake, who joined Manchester City for £41m earlier this month, with the 23-year-old already an experienced member on the international stage.  

And Tindall has told the Bournemouth Echo that he would allow Brooks to leave should his valuation be met.

He said: ‘We as a football club have got a value of what we believe for our players.

‘And if that value is met then players have got the opportunity to then discuss with whoever they need to discuss with and then make the decision they feel is right for them.

‘But first and foremost, it needs to be right for the football club and once it’s right for the football club then, as you’ve seen in the past, I don’t think it’s a club that will stand in anybody’s way providing that the club’s happy with and it meets the valuation of the player.’ 

Brooks rarely featured during the previous campaign after undergoing ankle surgery, but is still viewed highly following his impressive maiden season for the club.

He could also become part of the potential culling from Bournemouth following the departures of Ake and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

Josh King and Callum Wilson are also expected to secures switches away during the current market.
