The shock of the weekend definitely came at Manchester United as West Bromwich Albion defeated the current Premier League champions in their own backyard as David Moyes terrible start continues.
Now the Football Transfer Tavern is full of speculation about the future of the winning goal scorer Saido Berachino with today’s Mail Online suggesting that both Arsenal and Everton are looking to snatch the youngster away from The Hawthorns.
The England Under-21 international had a brilliant week after firstly netting in normal time for Steve Clarke’s side during their Capital One penalty defeat to Arsenal before becoming the star of the show at Old Trafford.
These impressive displays have alerted a number of Premier League sides who have realised the opportunity to land the 20-year-old at a bargain price given his current contractual situation.
The youngster is currently paid a mere £850-a-week by the Baggies and his deal expires next summer which means he could leave in a cut-price deal in the near future.
Understandably the West Midlands side are eager to offer Berhaino – who left war-torn Burundi as a 10-year-old – a new lucrative deal but it could be too late with Arsenal and Everton ready to swoop for the promising youngster who could be available for as little as £300,000 in compensation.
Toffees boss Roberto Martinez reportedly had scouts watching the player at Old Trafford while Arsene Wenger will be monitoring his contract situation with close interest with a view to a possible move.
Will the Manchester United slayer continue to build on his growing reputation? Let us know your thoughts below.
