Manchester United are trying to hijack Liverpool's proposed move to sign Stoke City attacker Xherdan Shaqiri in a £12m deal this summer, according to reports via TeamTalk.

Summer signing Diogo Dalot will reportedly be included in Manchester United's upcoming pre-season tour after being taken off crutches. And the club are poised to complete a £1.5 million move for Grant, with the player set to undergo a medical this week.

Grant, 35, has played over 500 professional games in spells at Derby, Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley.

Shaqiri, who scored eight goals and provided seven assists in the Premier League last season, is desperate to return to a top-flight club, although even he must be surprised by the news that he has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

In October 2016, during Mourinho's first season as the Manchester United manager, Grant put in a Man of the Match display for Stoke as they held the Red Devils to a 1-1 draw at the Old Trafford, earning their first ever point at the Theatre of Dreams since 1980.

SC is not the only state expected to suffer, Iowa pork producers could lose $560 million from a Mexico tariff on the product. That is mainly because they need metal to to build their cars, including many parts from overseas.


Grant represented the England national team at various youth levels, but has never been selected for the Three Lions' senior side.

United sold Sam Johnstone to West Brom in a deal worth around £6.5m earlier on Tuesday, while Portugal youth worldwide Joel Pereira is set to be loaned out for the 2018/19 season.

They were not used a lot by Mourinho last season and they have attracted interest from other clubs.

Over the recent years, a number of goalkeepers have been promoted to the first-team squad, but opportunities have been sporadic due to the dominance of David De Gea.
