Man Utd make tough call as Everton stand firm on £35m valuation of star

Manchester United are considering a summer move for Everton star Idrissa Gueye but have doubts over his asking price, a report claims.

United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer is reportedly ready to oversee a major overhaul of his squad at the end of the season, after the Red Devils missed out on Champions League football.

French giants PSG were said to have made a £30million offer for Gueye last summer, with the Toffees having to deny that the midfielder had handed in a transfer request.

Reports in April claimed that Gueye is ‘being considered’ by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a potential replacement for Ander Herrera, who is leaving the club.

A report from the Liverpool Echo claims that the Toffees have managed to put United off by slapping a hefty price tag on the 29-year-old.

The report states that Everton are unwilling to move from their asking price of over £35million which has managed to successfully ward off the Red Devils.

They apparently feel that Everton are ‘over-pricing a player who has little re-sale value’ and as such will be pursuing other targets.
