He remains under contract with the La Liga outfit until 2023.

And that deal includes a massive £71million release clause.

Despite that, La Razon claims United are among a host of clubs plotting a transfer move for the versatile attacker.

Chukwueze is capable of playing on either flank, and his displays for Villarreal have secured him a whole host of admirers.

The Spanish publication claims Chelsea, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and Everton are also keen.

The star helped his country to Under-17 World Cup success in 2015 and won the Bronze Boot award at the tournament before going on to continue his progress in Spain.
