Man Utd To Pay £88m Transfer Fee For Ideal Juan Mata Replacement

Ideal Juan Mata Replacement

Manchester United must cough out around £88million for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso as they show an interest in him this summer.

The former Paris Saint-Germain starlet has had a fine season in La Liga and is now being linked with a big move away as a number of top clubs show interest.

Marca claims that Spurs and Real Madrid are joining MUFC in taking a look at the 23-year-old, but any club who wants the player will have to pay his £88m release clause.

Will United do so? Time will tell. But it’s interesting that these rumours surface as Juan Mata’s Old Trafford future looks to be in some doubt.

The Daily Mirror recently reported that Mata had failed to agree on a new contract with Man Utd as he’s set to become a free agent this summer.

Lo Celso is a similar style player, capable of filling a creative role in either a central midfield position or more advanced as a number ten.

The Argentina international could be a fine fit for United in that role, if the Spaniard does end up leaving, and may be worth paying the big money for as he can certainly continue to develop after a promising start to his career.
