Manchester United have been linked with Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso for quite some time and the latest reports are interesting.

Few days back, we covered a report (via Estadio Deportivo) claiming that officials from the Spanish club flew to England to discuss the Argentine international’s future and an option of moving to to Man United for a fee of 75 million euros was discussed.

Transfer: Man Utd willing to splash cash and offer player to sign £60million star

Now, El Desmarque have revealed that the Red Devils are weighing up several moves to hire the services of the South American star.

The Spanish outlet have mentioned that Man Utd’s primary idea is to offer a huge fee of £80million to sign the 23-year-old midfield star. On the other hand, their second option is to move in with a player plus £60million cash offer to get the signing done. It is mentioned that the sale would be the biggest ever in the history of Betis and it would help them reinforce the squad.

Lo Celso is a talent, who can effectively play as a defensive midfielder, as a creative central midfielder and also as a central attacking midfielder.

Last season, Real Betis normally started him in the central midfield but he was in a free role and had the license to move back and forth whenever needed. In all competitions, the former PSG midfielder featured in 46 games for the Spanish club and directly contributed in 22 goals.

At Old Trafford, Pogba has mainly played with freedom in the center of the park. The French international was the club’s top scorer last season but overall, he was highly inconsistent. Should the Red Devils opt to sell the Les Bleus star and lure Lo Celso?

The La Liga star is currently with the national side taking part in the on-going Copa America. In the opening game, Colombia defeated Argentina 2-0 and Lo Celso played for full 90 minutes for the La Albiceleste.
