Real Madrid have declared midfielder Fede Valverde almost unsellable with a staggering £448million release clause after interest from Manchester United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified Valverde as a key target this summer but has suffered a major setback in his pursuit given the 21-year-old’s huge release clause.
Real Madrid have shunned interest for midfielder Fede Valverde with £448m release clause
Manchester United shown interest in the 21-year-old but will now look elsewhere
According to Sport, United are aware that Madrid are not willing to budge at all and the transfer will be impossible.
Valverde has been likened to former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in his style of play and has been a breath of fresh air in the Madrid midfield.
Manchester United will now look at other options to strengthen their midfield this summer
Solskjaer wants a few big name signings this summer and most definitely wants to strengthen his midfield options, with Paul Pogba rumoured with a summer exit.
However, he will have to look elsewhere for that Pogba replacement as Valverde has been declared virtually untransferable for now.
