While football has ground to a halt for the time being, there's still plenty of transfer activity going on behind the scenes, as clubs use the unforeseen break to finalise summer transfer plans.

Olympiacos midfielder Mady Camara has been linked with the Blades for some time now, with his impressive technical skills and dynamism said to be of great interest to the club's recruitment team - to the extent that a United bid was reportedly turned down in January.

Fresh Greek media reports now claim that his club has slapped a hefty €25 million - which currently works out as close to £22 million - price tag on the 23-year-old, who has dazzled scouts from numerous top tier clubs throughout his side's 2019/20 Europa League campaign.

The report states that the Greek Super League leaders are "relaxed" about the increased interest being shown in the Guinea international, and aren't in any rush to cash in on one of their key players.

Camara began his career in the second tier of French football with AC Ajaccio, before joining his current club in 2018. He's also been capped 11 occasions for his country.

The club record signing of Sander Berge bolstered United's midfield back in January, and Chris Wilder could well look to make another quality addition in this position this summer, as the Blades look to establish themselves as a mainstay in the Premier League.

United have also been linked with Queens Park Rangers midfielder sensation Eberechi Eze, whose club are likely to also demand a fee upwards of £20 million for their talent.
