were looking to finalize an global agreement for Scotland. Swansea, however, is worth the 23-year-old in the current market at over £20 m, as he still has two years left to contract.
Last season, McBurnie scored 24 objectives for Swansea City and is a top target for Chris Wilder as he seeks to add a clinical touch to his Bramall Lane team before they return to top flight. Last week, he signed Callum Robinson from Preston North End and maintains an interest in Neal Maupay from Brentford, which has four Premier League clubs plus West Brom fighting for his signing.
However, United will concentrate immediate efforts on McBurnie as they look to persuade Swansea to sell with the striker keen to play in the Premier League.
