Man Utd perhaps clear to secure signing of £50million ‘talented’ player – Report

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Man Utd boss

Manchester United have been interested in David Brooks for quite some time and the latest reports suggest that the Red Devils are perhaps clear to secure his signing.

According to MEN, Leicester City’s have shifted their interest elsewhere and therefore, the path to sign the Welsh international may have cleared for the Old Trafford club.

Transfer: Deal close – Man Utd could agree £45.8million terms in fee and wages to seal signing

The renowned outlet have talked about a valuation of £40million but earlier this month, The Sun exclusively reported that the Cherries will only part ways with their winger if their huge price tag of £50million is met.

In the 2018-19 campaign, the 23-year-old made 30 appearances under Eddie Howe in the Premier League and diretly contributed in 12 goals (Transfermarkt).

Brooks was able to provide an assist vs Manchester United at Old Trafford but the Cherries lost the fixture.

He spent majority of the last season on the sidelines due to an ankle injury and only made 8 appearances in the PL, scored just one goal. As far as this season is concerned, so far, the youngster has played 3 games for Bournemouth but is yet to find the net.

Old Trafford legend, Ryan Giggs, who is the coach of the national Welsh side, is a huge admirer of Brooks. He praised the attacker and stated (via MEN):

“Brooksy’s obviously a talented player and now Bournemouth are in the Championship. I’ve always said it’s better if the lads are playing, and the higher the standard the better as well. But that isn’t always a given.”

So far, the winger has played 12 games for his country and most recently, he featured for 76 minutes in the 1-0 victory against Bulgaria in the UEFA Nations League.

To be honest, the price tag of £50million is very high for a player who spent most of his time on the treatment table last term and will be out of contract in less than two years. Do you think, Man Utd should move to secure his signing?


  1. Woodward just want to sign players from the duration of 1to 10 million pounds. He runs from big money players. Now liverpool are monitoring dotmund team and united don.t need a prophet to tell them whats next if they failed to sign the awaited young star, also dotmund are trying to get sancho’s replacement this is an opportunity united need to take advantage of. Before is too late.

  2. I want to quickly summarise what andy cole said about united weak point on transfer windows, he admitted that ole job is made difficult due to rivals such as man city and liverpool success in the tranfer window. He stressf that united have attracted best players who are willing to win cos united had winning opportunity. But we have now gotten to the stage of just signing which can.t make us any better. United have project of building great stars for some years and make them able to win leagues for this to take place, ole have to be a very good salesman. Cole believe ole can convince the players he want to join united if he is a good salesman. About a player like sancho, this young guy is that player that will stay for long without pushing for a move, also the fact that he didn’t push for a move to united doesn’t mean he is not interested i know he wish to join united as he repeatedly told ole.

  3. I still think Villa captain was a player to push forward with but it looks too late and now £50 million for a player who was injured last year with no proven goal scoring record is too much of a gamble

  4. Tidy player but really….is he a united player,these players won’t get u in Europe let alone win it

  5. Chelsea have just announce another new player and arsenal, now tell me how united expects their fans to feel. This club is yet to sell smalling, dalot, and lingard, so how can they raise funds to sign sancho, umtiti and any other two players? Yet we always read about united set to sign, 60, 80, 50 million pounds and then nothing is done. So united can put this money it is enough to buy sancho and one or two players. Please no time left let us see action and not empty talks. We are tired of woodward’s game.

  6. How long will it take for united to meet the price for sancho, and when are they going to sign players. We need answers and not excuses.
