Late Bid Submitted: Manchester United submit late offer for £30m titan, he could be their next Paul Scholes – opinion
Manchester United is negotiating a last-minute signing - Agents have pushed things along.
Sport reported two days ago that Manchester United and Barcelona are in talks over a potential transfer involving Sergio Dest and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Mundo Deportivo has already denied this notion, while also stating that the American might depart Camp Nou before the window shuts.
Manchester United is an option for the 21-year-old, who previously played under Erik ten Hag at Ajax.
Xavi Hernández benched the USMNT defender against Rayo Vallecano before leaving him out of the squad for the final two games. In this situation, his representatives have attempted to remove him from the Blaugrana.
According to reports, Manchester United “appears as a feasible and almost only departure option” for Dest, and he is interested in joining them. His agents have ‘accelerated talks’ with the Premier League club over a possible move to Old Trafford in the last few hours.
There are currently no negotiations between the two teams, but his agents are in communication with both.
Barcelona wanted €20 million for the fullback, but it appears unlikely that they will be able to get that sum. As a result, Mundo believes that a loan agreement is the “most likely solution.”
After being left out of Xavi’s plans, Barcelona hopes to find a solution for Dest, even if it means sending him on loan.
