Manchester United are keeping tabs on Valencia midfielder Uros Racic.[source-Daily Mail]
According to the Mail, United are monitoring the player but have no official contact with his team.
This has further been corroborated by the Sun.
The Sun states that United are preparing a £28m bid for the midfielder. The club are hopeful of a successful deal due to Valencia’s financial problems. However, his release clause stands at £92m
Valencia-based Journalist Hector Gomez has a different take on the situation. He reports that while United’s interest in Racic is very real, but Valencia have denied any bid for the 22-year-old ever being placed.
Racic is a box-to-box midfielder who is adept at the defensive side of the game. He is sure with both feet and has a good shooting range. The midfielder also idolizes United superstar Paul Pogba.
Manchester United have already signed Ajax midfielder Donny Van De Beek in this summer transfer window. With Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba’s positions in the team all but guaranteed, it would seem that Racic is being considered as a back-up option for Fred or Nemanja Matic. United also have Scott McTominay to fill in the same role.
Though being linked with a move to a team like Manchester United is a big deal for nearly every player, there is no surety of the move even taking place. This move for the Valencia midfielder belongs in the wait and watch category for now.
