Manchester United: Fans rage at Red Devils’ transfer link to Ansu Fati

Manchester United: Fans rage at Red Devils’ transfer link to Ansu Fati - Manchester United Transfer Rumours

Manchester United have made the first moves ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League season by completing the signing of Odion Ighalo

Ever since he arrived on loan from Shanghai Shenhua at the start of the year, the Nigerian has impressed at the club he supported as a boy, scoring four goals in eight appearances so far. Ighalo has earned himself a contract extension off the back of these performances which will keep him at Old Trafford until 2021.

United were in the process of planning for a squad overhaul before the nationwide lockdown was imposed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic (ESPN). Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to bring in a new crop of young talent and scouts have been monitoring the development of Barcelona forward Ansu Fati.

However, the Red Devils accept that Fati will remain at Barcelona, despite rumours of a £100m bid for the Spanish under-21 international.

This eye-watering figure will surely raise a few eyebrows, given his young age. The 17-year-old recently signed a new deal in December that will expire in 2022 and includes a release clause reportedly worth €170m (£152.73m).

The Spaniard is yet to be officially promoted to the first team as he is still technically registered with the Barca B team, although he has scored four goals in 16 games in La Liga this season (WhoScored).

As the transfer window approaches, Solskjaer has once again been linked to a number of expensive targets, including Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, who is unlikely to come cheap.

Unsurprisingly, loads of United fans slammed the club’s “rubbish” link to Fati, with one supporter blasting the “ridiculous” amount of money, while another branded him a “Messi wannabe” in reference to his famous teammate.
