but United Believe Leeds Ass Phillips26, is the most accessible of the trio and ready to make a move.

He is due to hold talks over a new deal at Elland Road in the summer – but it’s unlikely to happen sooner as he’s in the process of changing agents.

And that gives their bitter rivals United a chance to make their move.

However, rice would be United’s preferred target David Moyes has hit his head with a £150million price tag.

United also know Borussia Dortmund most likely won’t sell Bellingham this summer – how Erling Haaland is ready to go.

They have dealt with the German club on consecutive summers when trying to negotiate a deal for Jadon Sancho and know how stubborn they can be.

And with United’s place in next season’s Champions League far from certain, they could be restricted in their transfer deals.

So Phillips is the best option right now as United look to rebuild under a new manager – that seems to be Erik ten Hag.

He will succeed midfielders like Scott McTominay, Fred and Nemanja Matic in the summer but it’s a department that needs strengthening.

Leeds would be reluctant to sell any of their prized assets to United – while there are doubts as to whether the star would like the move.

Players like Eric Cantona and Alan Smith have made the move across the Pennines and Phillips knows what bad blood that would cause.

He has told Leeds he is ready to devote his future to them – but until that is done there is an opportunity for clubs to make their move.
