Barcelona strike huge dent into Manchester United’s transfer plans

KrychowiakManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are crying out in pain, after it was revealed they could miss out on a top midfield target.

Mundo Deportivo states Barcelona are expressing an interest in Sevilla’s Polish midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.

The 26-year-old, valued at around £34m, has excelled with the Europa League champions this season and made 42 appearances across all competitions, whilst his value could soar this summer with Poland’s involvement in the European Championships.

Krychowiak has consistently been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons but Barcelona’s interest could lead the experienced midfielder to remain in Spanish football, although it’s difficult to see how he would fit into the Catalan’s excellent squad.

With Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic the regular three-man trio deployed into the midfield, Krychowiak may be seen as an understudy- which gives United hope of winning the race for his signature by offering more regular first-team football.

However, our landlord believes Krychowiak would snub United instantly as he feels the two-time Europa League winner will want to test himself in the Champions League.

Should Krychowiak snub Barcelona for United? Let us know in the comments below!
