Manchester United are linked with a top quality Atletico Madrid star and we are not talking about Antoine Griezmann. The player in discussion is Ghanaian international Thomas Partey.
According to an exclusive story covered by Football Ghana, Man United are ready to activate Partey’s release clause to secure his signing in the summer.
The 25-year-old’s agent recently revealed (PassioneInter) that the termination clause is worth 50 million euros (£44million).
The African star is a strong defensive midfielder, who can effectively play a creative role in the center of the park as well.
Last season, he featured in 32 La Liga games for the Rojiblancos, scored 3 goals and provided 4 assists.
At Old Trafford, Nemanja Matic is the team’s first choice defensive midfield star. Few years back, the Serbian international used to be one of the best play breakers in the world but things have changed now.
The former Chelsea star will turn 31 in August, he had an average last campaign with the Red Devils and I think it has become evident that he is now slow and past his best.
So, in my view, a proven quality holding midfielder should be lured, who would serve the club in the years to come, and Partey fits the bill.
