Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified Everton’s Idrissa Gueye as the perfect replacement for the likely departing Ander Herrera.
Gueye, 29, is said to be available for a figure around or even lesser than £30 million, according to the report by Evening Standard. And Solskjaer, who has resigned himself to the departure of Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera to PSG, has reportedly targetted the Everton man as his replacement.
Manchester United and Ander Herrera still haven’t seen eye to eye about the Spaniard’s £200,000 per week wage demands, which likely means that he will depart at the end of the season having reportedly agreed to pre contract terms with PSG.
How will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revamp Manchester United?
That has opened the door for United to acquire 2 central midfielders, with West Ham’s Declan Rice also an option.
However should the London club refuse to sell the youngster, Gueye is said to be a cheaper alternative that the Norwegian boss can make a move for.
The report also states that United will try and bring in as many as five players in the summer, comprising a center back, a right back two center mids and a right winger.
FOX Sports Asia probability rating: 3/5; Gueye is Premier League tried and tested and could offer an economically prudent option to replace Ander Herrera. Sounds likely, especially if West Ham refuse to sell Declan Rice.
