Southampton fans appear to be astonished by the fee Manchester United are demanding for the loan of left-back Brandon Williams.
After all, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side did concede 68 goals in the Premier League last time out – only West Brom shipped more than the St. Mary’s Stadium outfit (Sky Sports).
Hasenhuttl will no doubt be wanting to add more players to his squad before the season is out, and they have been heavily linked with another defender in Williams in recent weeks and months.
However, they have been put off by the fee United want, according to The Telegraph. They say the Red Devils are looking for £3.75m.

The news was shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the Saints supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Williams news below
“3m wages for a bloke that is genuinely dross”
“Ridiculous prices and he’s not even that good. Move on”
“Man Utd are being totally unrealistic. They are spending shedloads of money on players, so it’s not as if they need the cash.”
“Football is about to implode financially. Clubs will go under. Big ones. Look at the financial inspired Super League panic last season. The money for this guy is barking mad.”
“Just forget it he’s not coming here why keep chasing somebody you will not get !”
