Faivre in action against PSG – his performances this season have caught the eye

He recently signed a new contract until 2025 and his value has skyrocketed, having joined Brest for just £450,000 last year.

And, according to Le10 Sport, a host of clubs are keen on Faivre with Man United and PSG said to be watching him.

New PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino was able to cast his eyes over Faivre on Saturday night as the midfielder played 90 minutes in Brest’s 3-0 defeat at the Parc des Princes.

United’s interest in Faivre comes amid plenty of Old Trafford exit rumours this month, with a host of players allegedly set to depart United.

Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero have been told they can leave the Red Devils ahead of their contracts expiring at the end of the season, while Newcastle are considering swoops for United trio Brandon Williams, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones.

Furthermore, Lingard was last weekend linked with a shock move to Internazionale of Milan – but only if the Italians can offload flop Christian Eriksen first.
