If reports in the media are anything to go by then Manchester United are interested in hiring the services of Martin Zubimendi from Real Sociedad.
The Spanish international, who made his debut for the La Roja last year, signed a new contract with the La Liga side until 2027 and it contains a release clause of £51.4million.
As per a recent story covered by AS (via SW), Man Utd are prepared to agree the £51.4million fee to sign the midfielder.
The Madrid-based news source have mentioned that Barcelona are also looking to sign the player and Sociedad are hoping to hold on to their prized asset.
However, Los Txuri-Urdin will not be able to do anything if the player’s 60 million euros release clause is activated.
The 23-year-old starlet is mainly a defensive midfielder. He has already made over 100 appearances for the Spanish side and in 2019-20, he was a key member of the squad that won the Copa Del Rey.
As far as the current campaign is concerned, so far, the young play breaker has made 14 appearances in the league, scored a goal and provided a couple of assists.
At Old Trafford, our main defensive midfielder is none other than marquee summer signing, Casemiro. The Brazilian international is one of the best and most decorated holding midfielders in the world.
We paid a lot of cash to sign him in the summer transfer window from Real Madrid and in all fairness, Ten Hag really does not need to sign another DM. Therefore, we should not move in for Martin Zubimendi.
It must be remembered that we are yet to replace Paul Pogba at the club. So, the Dutch coach should splash the cash and sign a creative center midfielder in the January transfer window. What do you think?
