Man United Transfer News: Manchester United accelerate discussions for £70 million rated Lille’s Nicolas Pepe to bolster their squad.
Manchester United are looking ahead to bolster their squad ahead of the next season, as an underwhelming campaign in the Premier league has compelled them to look for reinforcements.
So, according to a report by the Times, Manchester United have stepped up their chase for Nicolas Pepe and about to make a colossal £70 million bid for Nicolas Pepe this summer.
The Red Devils since many years are looking for an appropriate player at the right wing, and are yet to find one. Thus, with Pepe amassing 23 goals in 44 appearances, which only Kylian Mbappe could do better in the league has aroused the Interests of Manchester United.
The Red Devils see the French International a viable option, and are ready to meet Lille’s asking price for the 24-year-old winger this summer.
Since Manchester United are about to receive £80 million for Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan, the English giants can afford to break their bank for the French player.
It is further reported that Ole Solskjaer himself is believed to be ‘pushing’ for Pepe, who has also attracted enquiries from Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and various clubs in both La Liga and Serie A.
Although, considering Pepe will be an expensive signing for the Red Devils, they probably will have to push for Lukaku’s sale to Inter Milan, who are ready to meet your demands.
Manchester United have Daniel James to look after the left-wing and Marcus Rashford being promoted to a more central role, the club can have a lethal attack up ahead.
