Manchester United are still interested in a move for Sevilla striker Wissam Ben Yedder, according to reports.
Spanish outlet La Colina de Nervion reported two weeks ago of United’s interest in the Frenchman, who has a €40m release clause on his current deal.
The latest update from Sport Witness confirms that the Reds are still tracking the 28-year-old striker.
Ben-Yedder enjoyed a fantastic goal scoring season last time out scoring 30 times in all competitions. But it appears the Frenchman is ready to leave Spain this summer.
“It’s good timing, like you say. I really feel that,” said Ben Yedder when asked about moving away from Seville, as per the Sun
“I can’t lack respect for the club. Whatever the final choice is, I’ll be happy.
“But I dream of playing at a high level, in the biggest clubs in the world and to be alongside players of international class.
“It’s a case of seeing where I can get to in terms of level.
“I’m not more preoccupied about that than by my future. I’ll take stock after France duty but it will also be for Sevilla to decide.”
There is still nothing concrete in these reports that United are set to bid for the striker. However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be chasing a new forward this summer with Romelu Lukaku heavily linked with a move to Serie A. Ben Yedder could fit the profile for Solskjaer, albeit a different type of attacking presence.
