According to the latest reports, Manchester United chief Ed Woodward has turned to this agent in order to help him complete a transfer.

The summer transfer window is a frantic time. Agents and club chiefs all over the globe will be vying for some of the best talent in the world. For a club like Manchester United a lot hinges on a successful summer.

The pressure will be mounting on Ed Woodward who has often failed to live up to expectations since he took his post at Old Trafford.

The window will be a critical one. Ed Woodward will have to find a way to snip the deadwood away from the squad in a turbulent climate, without significantly crippling Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s options.

At the same time Woodward will also need to find a way to bolster the club’s squad with some astute reinforcements.

The likes of Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish are expected to be his two main targets. However with the potential of Paul Pogba leaving looking more likely with the cajoling words of Mino Raiola perpetually whispering in the Frenchman’s ears, Woodward will have to look at ways to solidify Man United’s midfield.

According to Le10Sport via the Daily Express, the Red Devils chief has identified Bayern Muncih midfielder Corentin Tolisso for that endeavour and he has requested agent Antero Henrique to help him sanction a deal.

The report claims that Antero Henrique was also involved in Bruno Fernandes‘ transfer in January:

"According to Le10 Sport, agent Henrique played a role in United signing Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon during the January transfer window.According to Le10 Sport, agent Henrique played a role in United signing Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon during the January transfer window."

Fernandes’ transfer proved to be extremely fruitful for the club and it is no surprise Woodward has turned his sights towards Antero Henrique once more

Corentin Tolisso is certainly a promising prospect and one that does have the potential to replace Paul Pogba.

The Bayern Munich midfielder is blessed with an abundance of pace and exuberant energy suggesting he could be ideal for Solskjaer’s counter attacking style. Tolisso is also adept technically with a creative eye able to spot his teammates in the final third.

Corentin Tolisso has not been a regular at Bayern this season, with competition stiff for the starting eleven, however at 25 he still has plenty of potential and lining up alongside Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes could bring the best out of him.

Do you think Corentin Tolisso would be a good signing for Man United?
