Transfer Rumours

Manchester United to close doors for negotiations with Evertonian forward

United were interested in adding the striker into their ranks as a foil for star striker Anthony Martial. But, they were put-off by the fees asked by Everton.

Everton put a price tag of £80 million (€87m/$106m) on the striker. Given United’s reluctance to pay the £108 asking price for their #1 target Jadon Sancho, it is safe to say Calvert Lewin doesn’t fit United’s budget.

Calvert-Lewin has had a stunning start to the season, scoring four goals in the first two games of the season. This includes a hat-trick against West Brom. The youngster’s performances in the previous season earned him a new 5-year extension in March. 

Manchester United have been interested in adding a forward into their ranks this summer. The club have already been rejected by star prospect Victor Osimhen in favor of the Italian side Napoli.

The Red Devils are also interested in out-of-contract star striker Edinson Cavani.

The lack of quality back-up in this position also justifies United’s interest in Calvert-Lewin. Odion Ighalo’s loan deal with United ends in less than 100 days.

    If you want to buy top players you must pay top prices. What is it about this that Clueless Woodward doesn’t understand?

    I’m not sure that Calvert-Lewis is a top player anyway but it’s interesting that Utd are now linked with Barcelona’s Dembele for a season long loan with an obligation to buy at the end of the season.

    The price is equivalent to Sancho, but Dembele isn’t Utd’s first choice, so if this deal were to go through it would mean Utd buying a second choice player for the same price as the first choice player who they won’t pay the price of. Genius!!
