Report: Manchester United plot £40m swoop for Everton star Idrissa Gueye

Idrissa Gueye could leave Everton this summer.

Manchester United have joined the hunt for Idrissa Gueye. According to The Daily Mail, Man United and Paris Saint-Germain are jostling for the Everton midfielder.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is plotting a major summer of spending after a disappointing end to the season dashed any hopes of a top-four finish.

A new midfielder is high on Man United’s wishlist. With Ander Herrera leaving, the Red Devils need a new face in their midfield ranks.

Gueye has been identified as the perfect solution. Solskjaer believes the tenacious defensive midfielder can be the ideal partner for Paul Pogba in the middle.

The 29-year-old has been with Everton since summer 2016 after leaving relegated Aston Villa. He has since racked up over 100 appearances but could be set to leave.

 

Prior to his move to England, Gueye was playing for Lille in Ligue 1. PSG now want to lure the French-speaking Senegal international back to France this summer.

Everton face a major battle to keep Gueye ahead of next season. After digging their heels in during the January transfer window, the Toffees could lose Gueye this summer.

Man United have now joined PSG in the race to sign Gueye and he will not come cheap. Marco Silva’s men will demand £40m for the midfield star.
