Midfield is without doubt Manchester United’s weakest department as Ole has not signed a single quality CM since taking over the managerial job.
The Norwegian coach must improve things in the center of the park if the Red Devils are to become a force and win titles again. As per reports going on in the media, Franck Kessie is consistently linked.
Transfer: £74,000-a-week playmaker tempted to sign for Manchester United – Report
According to a report covered by Mundo Deportivo (news image provided below), Man Utd are pushing and tempting the representative to hire the services of the AC Milan star, whose contract will expire in June next year.
The Spanish media outlet have mentioned that for now, the 24-year-old midfielder, who is also followed by the likes of PSG, Atletico Madrid and Liverpool, is in no rush to make his decision.
Earlier this month, Italian news source, La Gazzetta Dello Sport, reported that Ivory Coast international will be ready to accept a deal worth 8 million euros annually i.e. around £130,000-a-week.
Kessie directly contributed in 20 goals in all competitions for the Italian giants last season. He is naturally a defensive midfielder but can be utilized in the creative role as well. This season, in 7 appearances, he is yet to score or create a goal for the Rossoneri.
At Old Trafford, Man Utd’s main holding midfield star is Matic, whose best days are long gone and he normally warms the bench.
It is time to replace the Serbian international, do you think Man Utd should make an offer to sign Franck Kessie?
Franck Kessie at 24/25 is the best pound-for-pound DM out there, with room to grow. He’s a complete footballer and would enable United to partner Pogba & Fernandes in a 3, and make some real progress, until Ole realises that a 3-5-2 sets the team up to dominate games more easily anyway.
He’s a better footballer than Bissouma, Ndidi, Neves, Sanches, Zakaria and the not available Camavinga & Saul, but is not the replacement for Pogba (that would be Gravenberch).
Please please get him.
