Bournemouth are reportedly prepared to sell Nathan Ake and Joshua King this summer, a development which is said to have alerted Manchester United.
At a time when the Cherries are struggling to remain in the Premier League, speculation naturally persists regarding a number of their star men.
However, according to the Daily Mail, club officials plan to make significant cuts before the beginning of next season, regardless of whether the South-coast outfit are still in the top flight.
While the majority of their players will likely be made available, there will be strong interest in defender Ake and forward King.
United have been linked with both players in the past, particularly the latter, who came close to returning to Old Trafford during the last transfer window.
With just 12 months left on his contract, King is also valued less than his teammate.
