MANCHESTER UNITED KEEN ON SIGNING THIS STAR PLAYER
Manchester United is reportedly interested in recruiting Federico Valverde from Real Madrid and is willing to spend €70 million for the midfielder.
According to a report from Catalan source El Nacional, Manchester United is interested in signing Federico Valverde in the summer transfer window. The Red Devils are willing to pay €70 million to Real Madrid for the Uruguayan midfielder.
Since joining Real Madrid from Penarol in July 2016, Federico Valverde has come a long way.
The 23-year-old has been quietly biding his time in the middle of the park for Los Blancos in recent years and is widely regarded as one of the team’s long-term solutions.
Valverde, however, is dissatisfied with his current place in the Real Madrid first squad, despite starting ten of the 12 games in which he has been available for selection, according to the article. Nonetheless, his predicament has sparked Manchester United’s interest.

Valverde has long been a target for the Red Devils, who have attempted to sign him in the past. If El Nacional’s accusations are to be believed, next summer maybe their greatest chance to sweep the Uruguayan international away from Real Madrid.
The interest in the 23-year-old is understandable, given that Paul Pogba’s contract appears to be coming to an end, with Real Madrid among his pursuers. With Donny van de Beek likely to leave Old Trafford due to his dissatisfaction with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United would need to sign a midfielder, which makes Valverde a possible option.
The Premier League’s heavyweights have just suffered a setback in their pursuit of Vinicius Junior, a Real Madrid standout. However, there is the reason for optimism in the case of Valverde, with Manchester United willing to pay €70 million to obtain his services.
Real Madrid’s attitude on selling Valverde is not mentioned in the story, but it would be fascinating to see if the club is willing to sell him for €70 million if a deal is made. Valverde appears to be a popular figure in the transfer market at the moment, owing to his frustrations at Real Madrid, with Manchester United preparing to make a play for him.
