The Sun reports that United have contacted the MLS club about Duran weeks after Liverpool made similar requests.

The young striker could be a good option for United who will need young talent given Cristiano Ronaldo’s age and current dissatisfaction up front.
United drew 1-1 with Chelsea on Saturday night but looked limited in the final third, relying on a late Casemiro header to secure the point.
