Man Utd set to swoop for £50m-rated midfielder

Manchester United will have a busy summer ahead of them as we look to replace both Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini in midfield.

36-year-old Carrick is retiring at the end of the season whilst Fellaini looks set to leave the club on a free transfer when his contract expires.

With these two departing Jose Mourinho will be left with only four experienced central midfielders on our books despite predominately playing a 4-3-3 formation since signing Alexis Sanchez in January.

A number of replacements have been linked with a move to Manchester United and the latest is Marseille playmaker Morgan Sanson.  According to we could be set to make an offer for the French midfielder.

The 23-year-old has predominately played in the number 10 role in southern France this season where he has scored eight goals and recorded two assists in 30 Ligue 1 appearances (23 starts).

Sanson is yet to receive his first cap for the French national team under Didier Deschamps but was previously a regular for the under-21s.

Marseille only brought Morgan Sanson to the Stade Velodrome from Montpellier in January last year and has been a regular ever since.  However, should we show interest in signing the player you cannot imagine the French side would be able to keep a hold of Sanson.

Morgan Sanson is mobile midfielder who is technically gifted and could certainly thrive in an attacking Premier League side. believe the player could cost us up to £50 million but in today’s market and with several years ahead for the player this price wouldn’t be considered a huge risk.
