Crystal Palace put £65m price tag on star linked to Manchester United

Crystal Palace are anticipating offers for Marc Guehi this summer, but they’ve not given up hope of keeping their best defender.

The Palace centre-back is currently starring for England at Euro 2024, starting alongside John Stones after injured forced Harry Maguire to miss the tournament.

According to The Telegraph, Palace have put a £65million price tag on Guehi’s head – with the hope that prices potential suitors out of a deal.

Palace are not going to rush into accepting any bids this summer since Guehi has two years left to run on his current contract. That said, they will be wary of letting him enter his final 12 months.

It is understood that talks over a new deal at Selhurst Park have been put on hold.

Manchester United face competition for Guehi

Tottenham are understood to be chasing the Palace defender.

They won’t be playing Champions League football next season, so it’s not like they have offer that as a pull factor against United, who will be competing in the Europa League after winning the FA Cup.

Guehi could come in as a potential replacement for Raphael Varane, although United have recently agreed on personal terms with Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite.

Branthwaite missed out on a place in England’s Euro 2024 squad, whereas Guehi is a starter in Harry Maguire’s absence.
