Big news for Manchester United as Frenchman to leave Champions before close of transfer window
The big news coming out of France is that Manchester United target Houssem Aouar could be set to leave Lyon before the window closes.
It is no secret that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a massive fan of Aouar and wanted the board to sanction a transfer move either in the last summer, or the January window, to get a transfer deal done.
Lyon wanted £55million for his signature in the summer, but with Covid hitting the club in the inter window, they did not intend to pay that fee in January either.
However, there has been alot of rumours over the past few months that Aouar wants to leave the French club this summer and with his contract running down, reports have claimed that he could be worth just £17 million this summer
As per RMC Sport, the Frenchman is among multiple players that could be shown the exit door as director of sport Juninho looks to resolve an attitude problem in the dressing room.
Amid the speculation United have been given the green light to try and get a transfer deal done after Lyon boss Peter Bosz recently opened up and admitted that the tricky Frenchman can leave this summer if a big offer comes in
“Aouar? He can leave, this is modern football. Up until the last moment, he can leave,” Bosz told French outlet butfootball.fr.
Look, this is the type of player that United need to be signing in the transfer windows to win back that title, so if the reports are true and they could get him for a bargain they should make a move.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, but United would be massive fools to not even make a move for the player that would add something different to the squad
