Report – Man United want £36m 70-goal hitman as Lukaku replacement

Manchester United are planning to move for Wissam Ben Yedder as a potential Romelu Lukaku replacement, reports claim.

Wissam Ben Yedder

Lukaku has previously spoken about his admiration for the Italian league and has made no secret of his desire to leave Old Trafford.

ABC de Sevilla report that United are looking at bringing in Sevilla striker Ben Yedder should Lukaku seal a summer switch to Italy.

The France striker scored 30 goals in all competitions last season and has an attractive release clause of just £36million – which United are reportedly ready to trigger.

He first joined Sevilla three years ago from Toulouse in his homeland of France and has since netted 70 times for the LaLiga club – two of which came in the 2017/18 Champions League against United to knock them out at the round of 16.

The 28-year-old has previously admitted he is open to joining a bigger side. He said: and I quote “I dream of participating in at the most effective level, within the biggest clubs within the world and be next to world-class players to envision how far I will go”.

I can’t be disrespectful in the club. regardless of the final decision, I’ll be fine. I’m not troubled concerning my future. “I can notice a balance after the selection is made, however, it’ll even be Sevilla who decides”.
