‘United Should Go For Him’ ‘Villa Will Be Better Than Us At This Rate’ Fans Frustrated That Rival Could Beat Them To 50M Deal

‘United Should Go For Him’ ‘Villa Will Be Better Than Us At This Rate’ Fans Frustrated That Rival Could Beat Them To 50M Deal

Aston Villa are interested in signing Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma but the Seagulls are demanding £50m for the 25-year-old, according to reports in the English media.

Manchester United, along with Liverpool and Arsenal, are also believed to be keeping tabs on the Malian international and, reacting to Villa’s interest, fans on Twitter expressed their frustration as to why the Red Devils won’t make a bid for the player:

He is undoubtedly a very good midfielder but, with just eighteen months left on his current deal at the Amex Stadium, it’s difficult to see any club, even Villa, meeting Brighton’s £50m asking price.

Bissouma appears to be running down his contract into its final year, so it is more likely that United will get involved in a battle with other teams for his signature next summer.

Considering United’s problems in central midfield at the moment, though, that may not be soon enough.
