Manchester United ‘chase £15m Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina’

Manchester United have reportedly entered the race to sign the out-of-favour Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina. 

United are hoping to take advantage of the uncertainty surrounding the 25-year-old’s future at St Mary’s after he was left out of their pre-season trip to Austria.

Arsenal are also believed to be interested in Lemina, according to talkSPORT.

Lemina was a surprise omission from Ralph Hasenhuttl’s squad when they departed for Austria on Monday morning. 

Southampton signed Lemina, 25, from Juventus for £18million two years ago and he has been unable to nail down a regular spot at St Mary’s.

Sportsmail reported on Monday that Hasenhuttl is now open to cashing in on the Gabon international 

With three years still left on his contract they will look to recoup the fee they paid out.

Lemina admitted at the weekend he is ready to quit the club, saying: ‘I still have another three years of contract. But it is true that I do not rule out the possibility of seeing something else.

‘The last four months have not been easy for me, with my injury. The coach put his team together. I want to start afresh. So why not leave?

‘We have very good discussions with the club. We are in agreement. If I don’t feel good in this project, I can leave.

‘They are giving me the opportunity to be able to go elsewhere.’
