Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Premier League defender will cost Manchester United £50 million to sign!
Manchester United have been warned Ben White will cost £50million in the summer transfer window, according to reports.
The Brighton defender, 23, enjoyed a fine debut Premier League season this term, and he was rewarded for his form by replacing the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold in England’s final 26-man squad for Euro 2020.
Brighton are unsurprisingly desperate to keep hold of the Three Lions star beyond this summer, but it has led to alot of speculation that United are very much interested in trying to get a transfer deal done.
However, Brighton are so desperate to keep hold of White, the Seagulls have slapped a £50m price tag on the Dorset-born defender – and they will not accept anything less for the man.
White is certainly a player that has proven himself in the Premier League and is now ready to make that step up and join one of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.
United would be the idea move for the player, as they lack quality at the back. But if the reports are true and Brighton will not let him leave the club for less than £50 million, he may be priced out of a move to Old Trafford.
United will not want to pay silly money for the defender as they know that there are other parts of the pitch that need to be sorted out first, and spending £50 million on White, may be seen as too much money.
But saying that, he is quality and would add some more depth to that side.
