Manchester United will have to pay €50million to sign Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid in the summer.
The English Premier League side have expressed their interest in signing the Ghanaian international with the recent uncertainty surrounding the future of Ander Herrera, who could leave on a free transfer to PSG.
Ole Gunnar Solkjaer after his appointment as permanent manager of Manchester United confirmed that his side had identified their summer targets, and Partey is reportedly on the list of possible recruits.
However, the 25-year-old is very keen on a move to Old Trafford as he wants to fulfill his dream of playing in the Premier League.
United will be hoping to complete the deal before the start of the AFCON, where Partey is expected to feature for Ghana.
Partey has also been strongly linked to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspurs, as interest in the player grows high.
The former Tema Youth youth player scored in Atletico’s 4-0 win over Deportivo Alaves on Saturday in the La Liga.
