Transfer deadline day is well underway and over the last 24 hours, Man United have been linked with a late move to sign Yves Bissouma.
Here at Old Trafford Faithful, we were expecting a quiet January transfer window…
I guess you could say we’ve done more business than we thought – though all those have been outgoing moves.
Well, there could be a late transfer potentially on the cards for Ralf Rangnick and Manchester United.
The story comes from journalist Fabrice Hawkins, who works for RTL in France. He goes big, claiming United are one of three sides said to be in ‘intense’ discussions to sign the 25-year-old Brighton midfielder, Yves Bissouma.
It’s stated that United, along with Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa, are trying to sign Bissouma, with Brighton looking for £37.5m (€45m), to let their key midfielder leave – presumably before tonight’s deadline.
Bissouma has been linked with United before and if you’ve ever watched him play for Brighton, it’s pretty easy to see why.
I’m of the opinion that the Mali international would be a direct upgrade to what we currently have in that defensive-midfield role. This guy has been an absolute revelation for a Brighton side who continue to improve under Graham Potter.
With Donny van de Beek leaving on loan, we are looking a little light in that central role suddenly – and perhaps a late move for someone could fill that void.
Bissouma is ready to take that next step in his career and what better place to do that than the Theatre of Dreams?
I know it’s highly unlikely at this stage, given how late on in the day we are, but we can dream, right?
Would a late move for Yves Bissouma make sense for Man United? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
