According to transfer insider Dean Jones, who spoke with GiveMeSport.
Sky Sports Germany claimed in June that United is interested in the Germany winger, who is nearing the end of his 12-month deal at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern will be aware that, come January, he will be negotiating pre-contract terms with a foreign club, and the Bundesliga champions’ CEO Hasan Salihamidzic recently urged the 26-year-old to be open about his wishes so that ‘we can find a solution that makes everyone happy.
Jones has said that a prospective move to Old Trafford might be seen as a logical step for all parties, particularly because Gnabry could be available at a ‘reasonable price’.
The journalist told GiveMeSport: “It’s one they’ll have to consider if it drags on. And the longer he doesn’t sign a new contract, and the longer United doesn’t have a solution in attack, the more likely it becomes.
“He’s a solution on the market that is doable at a reasonable price, so it’s possible.”
