The Red Devils are said to watch players in Europe – rather than the Premier League – as they attempt to sign a loan deal before the January window closes.

Llorente has only started three of Atletico’s 19 La Liga games since he made a controversial £ 35 million move from Real’s rivals last summer.

United are said to be targeting players who haven’t had much fun this season, with the 24-year-old adjusting to the bill.

Llorente has only appeared for 16 minutes in the league and in the Champions League in the last two months, but has left the bench both in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup and in the last week.

MEN also report that United global scouting chief Marcel Bout is believed to have made a number of trips to Spain this season.

Solskjaer has already confirmed that he is on the market for two new players this month.

He said: ‘We are looking at a couple of signatures. Strengthen here and there, but the main group is there and the attitude is there and physical strength. ”

Pogba is expected to return to action early next month after suffering another ankle injury, while McTominay may be missing until April with a knee problem.
