Manchester United hold Alexis Mac Allister talks - Manchester United News

Manchester United have held internal discussions over signing Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, according to Ben Jacobs.

The Lowdown: Mac Allister impressing

Mac Allister, lauded as a ‘golden boy‘ by journalist Ryan Adsett for his performances at the World Cup with Argentina, has been starring for the Seagulls in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old, who can play as a defensive, central or attacking midfielder, scored a penalty and registered an assist in a 4-0 win over West Ham on the weekend and was the best-rated player on the pitch with a SofaScore rating of 8.5/10.

He has seen his Transfermarkt valuation rocket in recent months to a career-best €42m and appears to have caught the eye of those at Old Trafford.

The Latest: United update

CaughtOffside took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to share an update from Jacobs regarding Mac Allister.

He said that United have now held internal discussions over a move for the Brighton man, with £60m+ thought to be enough for his services.

The Verdict: Perfect

The Red Devils appear to be busy preparing for the summer window, with contact also made to Harry Kane in recent days, whereas Victor Osimhen is also on the shortlist of attacking targets.

A new forward and a versatile midfielder like Mac Allister could be just what is required, with the Brighton man going from strength to strength in England.

He is reportedly ‘ready to go’ to a bigger club this summer and would provide Erik ten Hag with a quality option in a number of midfield roles.

Mac Allister has comfortably outperformed Marcel Sabitzer, Christian Eriksen, Scott McTominay and Fred this season, as per WhoScored, so could form a formidable relationship alongside Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes.
