Regular visitors to Vital Manchester United may recall a recent article we ran relating to the reputed quest to bring French striker, Ben Yedder, to the club.
Our article, a-new-striker-appears-on-uniteds-summer-wish-list-but-im-not-sure-hes-the-one-for-us, questioned whether the 28-year-old forward, currently on the books of the La Liga side, Sevilla, was the right move for us.
Today, with the media continuing to offer coverage of the proposed deal, it appears to me, it is one of those transfer deals that could go either way.
On the one hand, we have the Express, pontificating that Manchester United have agreed on personal terms with the player and that his signing could finally pave the way for Romelu Lukaku to leave the club.
Whilst, on the other hand, we have the same source, The Express, in a different article, picking up on something in the Spanish media that suggests United’s keenness to sign the French international has resulted in Sevilla upping their efforts to keep the player.
Like I said earlier in the article, this deal could go either way but, although I’ve expressed my reservations relating to my belief it might not be the deal for us, my gut instinct tells me that if personal terms have been agreed then my money would be on him becoming a United player sometime in the very near future.
