Manchester United are interested in signing Issa Diop and willing to pay £45m plus a player for the West Ham defender , Sky Sports News understands.

West Ham are adamant that Diop is not for sale and it is believed they would not even listen to offers of less than £60m.

Diop played 38 times last season after the Hammers signed him from Toulouse a year ago for £22m.

United’s top priority is signing a centre-back this summer and they have been told by Napoli that Kalidou Koulibaly

would cost about £100m while Leicester value Harry Maguire at £80m.

Former United manager Jose Mourinho singled out Diop for praise when his side lost 3-1 at West Ham in September last year.

As well as a centre-half , United are intent on bringing a new right-back to Old Trafford to replace departing club captain Antonio Valencia and are preparing a second bid for Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka after their first £40m offer was rejected.
