Manchester United reportedly decide to enter the race to sign Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri, who will leave the bet365 Stadium during the summer.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri as a possible summer signing.

Shaqiri impressed for the Potters last season, contributing eight goals and seven assists in 36 Premier League appearances, but it was not enough to prevent the Staffordshire-based club from being relegated from the top flight.

A clause in Shaqiri's contract means that he is allowed to leave Stoke for a fee of £12m before the new campaign, and a number of clubs - including Liverpool - have allegedly expressed an interest.

However, according to The Sun, United are ready to make their move with Mourinho interested in signing the Switzerland international for a cut-price fee.

Mourinho is well-stocked in attack but the uncertainty surrounding the future of Anthony Martial means that the Portuguese may need to enter the market for a new wideman.

Shaqiri has already revealed that he wishes to remain in the Premier League.
