According to the reports from the Express, Manchester United have stepped up their interest in signing the replacement for PSG bound Ander Herrera. If the reports are to believe, the Manchester United board have opened the talks with Giovani Lo Celso.
Recently, Ander Herrera announced that he will leave Old Trafford at the end of the 2018-19 season. According to few outlets, the Spanish midfielder is keen on signing for the Ligue 1 champions, Paris St-Germain. In this situation, Manchester United are looking to sign the replacements for Ander Herrera. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees Giovani Lo Celso as a perfect replacement for Ander Herrera in the middle of the park.
The same report suggests that the board have contacted the Real Betis to sign Giovani Lo Celso. It is understood that the La-Liga outfit will let go of the player if the Premier League giants offer £88 million.
According to another reliable Spanish sports outlet, Marca, Manchester United have joined the race to sign the Argentine with Tottenham Hotspurs and Real Madrid. According to Marca, Real Betis have turned down the initial £52 million bid offered by Tottenham Hotspurs.
Real Betis loaned Giovani Lo Celso from the French outfit, Paris St-Germain in the 2018-19 season. Giovani Lo Celso scored nine goals and has five assists in 32 appearances for the Spanish club. With the decent performances by Argentine, the Spanish outfit signed the Argentine permanently for a fee of around £22 million. The player signed the permanent contract last month only. Also, PSG has a 20% sell-on clause on the Argentine midfielder. This clause might make Real Betis sell for an astronomical fee for any European heavyweights.
With Ander Herrera leaving Manchester United on a free transfer, the Norweigan is looking to sign at least one midfielder. Manchester United are linked with many midfielders like Bruno Fernandes, Adrien Rabiot. However, it remains interesting who Manchester United will sign. Also, signing a creative midfielder like Giovani Lo Celso will help the club to fill the void which might be left by Juan Mata.
