Good news as Man United target ₤27m rated star

Mateo Kovacic

Manchester United are preparing a bid said to be about ₤27 million for Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic’ in January.

The Croatia international is being targeted as a player to help bolster the club’s midfield as they prepare to be without Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick in the future.

According to reports in Spain, United are looking into the possibility of a deal with the recently re-crown World Champions and they believe the fee of ₤27 million will be enough to convince the Madrid-based club.

The 23-year old has been unable to live up to expectations in the Bernabeu since signing from Inter Milan in 2015.

He has barely featured this season as he is constantly kept out the team by regulars Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

Despite his relative exile at Madrid, Kovacic still has attributes needed to be the perfect midfield player with his ability to keep the ball and passing range chief among them. With United failing so far to convince Marouane Fellaini to remain at the club and Michael Carrick getting ever closer to the end of his United career, the club is seemingly planning for their departures with this move for Kovacic.

Time will tell if a January move will be successful or if they might have to hold off until the summer.
