Bournemouth will offer Welsh wonder David Brooks a huge pay rise to fend off offers from Manchester United and Tottenham.
Cherries boss Eddie Howe wants to reward the exciting midfielder, who has been a star since signing from Sheffield United.
United are drooling over former Manchester City academy graduate Brooks and are planning a move for him either at the end of the season or sooner if an auction starts.
The Old Trafford club have been doing their homework on the 21-year-old, who plays for former United legend Ryan Giggs at international level, and think he would fit in well.
According to the reports the two clubs could mount £40m bids in the summer, or possibly even in this January transfer window.
Bournemouth are ready to double his £1m a year wages at the Vitality Stadium with a £50,000 a week deal to keep him down on the south coast.
If Brooks were to end up at Old Trafford, it would set up the prospect of Ryan Giggs having his main creative players at Real Madrid, Juventus and Manchester United, given Aaron Ramsey’s looming move to Juventus.
