Manchester United are keen on improving their attacking department and David Brooks has been in the lime light for some time.
Last month, Sport Witness revealed that the Red Devils are more than serious about hiring the services of the Bournemouth attacker.
Transfer: Man Utd prepared to agree four year contract to secure signing of £27.7million player – Face competition
Moreover, The Mail also reported that the Old Trafford outfit are interested in the 23-year-old winger and the British source mentioned a price of £40milion.
However, the latest reports going on in the media suggest that the Cherries want even higher than the above mentioned fee even after getting relegated from the Premier League.
According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun yesterday, the Vitality outfit have told the suitors that Brooks will only be sold if his valuation of £50million is met. Apart from Man United, it is stated the Welsh attacker is also wanted by the likes of Tottenham and 2015-16 champions Leicester City.
On the other hand, as per Sky Sports, even Liverpool are interested in luring him.
In the season before last, the 12-capped international featured in 30 Premier League games for Bournemouth, scored 7 goals and also provided 5 assists (Transfermarkt). He did set up a goal against us in our own backyard but we won the contest 4-1.
Last season, he spent majority of the time on the treatment table due to an ankle problem, featured in just 9 games and scored 1 goal (vs Manchester City). Yesterday, the Cherries beat Blackburn in their opening Championship fixture and Brooks appeared for just 11 minutes in the second half.
In all fairness, the asking price of £50million is very high keeping in view that the player will be out of contract in June 2022. In your opinion, should Man United move to sign him?
According to Transfer Market Brooks has a valuation of £18m down from £27m, has played just 39 games in two seasons with Bournemouth, scoring 8 and providing 5 assists, and you want to know if United should spend £50m on him? Sorry No. £50m for a bench player is too much
Am not happy with what united are doing. Don’t just give up on sancho because he has made up his future and he also want the transfer. He showed today his angar on dotmond by not training with them. Pls united we are not far from a great victory. The fans are anxious to have sancho at united squad.dont give up we are hopeful.
50 mil for him is not worth it. I rather MU buy someone that can open up defenses and cheaper
