A couple of weeks ago, we covered a story from La Colina de Nervion claiming that Manchester United were after Wissam Ben Yedder.
The Spanish website believed the France international was one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s favourite options to reinforce his attack, and a deal could be done relatively easily since the forward has a release clause of €40m.
No move had been made as of yet, but the idea is there, as confirmed by France Football this week.
The French magazine explain the 28-year-old is a target for a few clubs around Europe, but the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are unlikely to grant him much playing time, mostly picking him up (if they do) for a backup role.
France Football don’t mention the release clause, claiming the player is reportedly valued somewhere between €35-45m, although slap bang in the middle of those figures is €40m, you know, his release clause.
Either way, they state Julen Lopetegui, who recently took over at Sevilla, could also be inclined to keep the forward around, despite Ben Yedder admitting it might be the right time to try something new.
Other than the confirmation Manchester United are thinking about Ben Yedder, there’s no real update here, but we thought you should know it is still being talked about.
