Man City reportedly see the midfielder as a long-term replacement for their captain Fernandinho.

The midfielder has just over one year left on his contract and could be offloaded for a reduced fee this summer.

The Swiss international midfielder will be an ideal signing for Manchester United as the Red Devils need a quality defensive midfielder.
