MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly drawn up a three-man shortlist in their hunt for a new winger.
ESPN claims the Red Devils are considering moves for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic, Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman and Juventus’ Douglas Costa.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is apparently looking at the trio after struggling to strike a deal for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho, 20.
United are thought to have agreed personal terms with the England star, with agent fees also progressing well.
But Dortmund are thought to want near £110million for Sancho.

And with just over two weeks until deadline day, Solskjaer is now making different plans.
Gareth Bale, 31, had been on the tactician’s radar, but he is now on the verge of rejoining Spurs from Real Madrid.
And United have instead turned to three of Europe’s biggest names who face uncertain futures at their own clubs.
Croatia international Perisic, 31, has just returned to Inter Milan after winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich.
However, boss Antonio Conte does not play with wingers in his 5-3-2 system.

And Perisic is understood to be on Inter’s transfer list.
Meanwhile, Bayern flyer Coman has found his place in Hansi Flick’s side under threat from new arrival Leroy Sane.
The 24-year-old wants first-team football this season after recovering from injury.
And Bayern could be willing to let Coman leave for Old Trafford.
Finally, 30-year-old Costa is up for sale following Andrea Pirlo’s arrival at Juventus.
Unlike Perisic and Coman, he is a left footer and would bring something completely different to United’s forward line.
