But alongside Yoro, United and Chelsea were reminded of David. The Canadian striker was linked with a £50million move to England last summer but the Ligue 1 side’s asking price was deemed prohibitive.

Once an exit was out of the equation, the striker had an underwhelming start to the campaign that may have left Lille ruing not cashing in.

He scored just two goals before November and had been dropped for Yusuf Yazici, before returning from that international break with aplomb and now only Kylian Mbappe has scored more league goals than David this season.

Not only was David’s hat-trick a clear message to potential suitors, United and Chelsea’s scouts will have been impressed with his ability to get clear-cut chances. He broke the Expected Goals (xG) single-game record against Le Havre, taking nine shots in total with four big chances missed alongside his three goals for an xG of 3.17.
