Solskjaer told £35 million Bissouma ‘has the potential to play Champions League football’ ahead of possible Man Utd move
Brighton manager Graham Potter believes Yves Bissouma has the potential to play Champions League football, amid speculation from Manchester United.
Even though the transfer window has been open for a few weeks now, United have not made any transfer deals that would help improve the side enough to make sure that they are certain to win that Premier League title back by the end of the season
But one player that has been on the radar of the Man Utd is that of Bissouma, the Malian who joined the Seagulls from Lille in 2018, and he has steadily improved at the Premier League side over the last few seasons.
He has stepped up his performances for Brighton this season, and it has been claimed that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to be handed around £35 million to try and get a deal done for the impressive midfielder, if he manages to get the backing from the board.
And following his stunner in the 2-1 win over Blackpool at the weekend, Potter has told the likes of United that he believes that Bissouma has the ability to play Champions League football, but also insists he is not currently concerned about him being sold.
“He’s got that quality (to play in the Champions League), he’s got those attributes that you need at that level,” said Potter of Bissouma on Sky Sports.
“It’s about him being consistent enough to do that. I think he’s made steps with that but there’s still more to do and more to come.
“It’s just nice that our players have taken a step forward, it’s nice for Yves that he’s taken a step forward. You never know anything in football these days.
“But from his perspective, I think he’s happy here, he wants to help the team, so we are quite relaxed about everything.”
