Manchester United need to improve things in the central midfielder because the likes of Fred and McTominay are not good enough, Matic is past his best and Pogba will be out of contract next summer.
Our record signing has been highly inconsistent for us therefore, a consistent performer must be lured as early as the winter transfer window.
According to El Nacional, Man Utd would be ready to make a bid worth 70 million euros (£58.8million) in order to sign Uruguayan international, Federico Valverde, from Real Madrid.
The South American star was a key member of the Los Blancos squad under the management of Zinedine Zidane but things have changed since the arrival of Ancelotti.
Therefore, the Spanish news source have mentioned that for regular football, Valverde would like to leave and the midfielder thinks that in the Premier League, he can reach his full potential.
The 23-year-old is an energetic midfielder, who likes to press and tackle but he does not regularly score or create goals. Last season, he only scored 3 goals in 33 appearances and this term, he has not netted any goal in 12 appearances.
Valverde’s current contract with the 13-time European Champions will expire in 2027 and it has a mammoth releae clause of 500 million euros (Sport).
In your opinion, should Man Utd spend £58.8million to sign him?
