Kevin De Bruyne is expected to join Manchester United in the summer, with the Belgian’s availability uncertain after he was forced to miss the Europa League semi-final against Benfica due to a back injury.
United will reportedly receive a fee of €8 million (£7.4 million), with De Bruyn one of the targets, as Antonio Conte prepares to bolster his midfield options.
The 24-year-old Belgian, who has only been with his former club Belgium since 2011, scored four goals in 27 league games last season.
United manager Louis van Gaal is reportedly looking to bolster the squad with reinforcements, with Louis van Basten and De Bruynes top of his wish list.
De Bruyne’s absence would be a major blow to United, who had hoped to land De Bruyle in the winter transfer window.
United have been linked with the Belgium international in recent months, with reports linking him to a move to Old Trafford.
The club are reportedly set to make a £12 million bid for De Bruley, who was named in the Belgian squad for the World Cup.
De Bruyn’s absence from the squad means that the Belgian is likely to feature for Belgium in the Euros.
