MANCHESTER UNITED are targeting a move to bring Andreas Christensen back to the Premier League, according to reports.
The defender only joined Barcelona last summer on a free transfer following his contract expiry from Chelsea.
He has impressed for the LaLiga giants in his 27 appearances but could be sold to relieve some of the club's financial issues.
It would be a blow for Barcelona as he has formed a solid defensive relationship with Ronald Araújo.
This has helped the club win the Spanish Super Cup and be on the verge of winning the LaLiga title with a historic defensive record.
This form has led to United being willing to offer up to £61million for the defender, as reported by Fichajes.

This fee could tempt the Catalonian side to cash in on the former Chelsea star.
Doing so could aid the club in their ambition to re-sign Lionel Messi.
Christensen would be able to strengthen Erik ten Hag's defensive options at Old Trafford.
The report suggests that the Dutchman would be willing "to throw the house out the window" to sign him.
