Bid for Forsberg
Manchester United are ready to offer RB Leipzig an astonishing €50 million for Emil Forsberg, Calcio Mercato claims. Or should that be a standard €50m? Every player United target seems to be at least worth that, sometimes more.
Is the 25-year-old Swede worth such a casually outrageous sum? Yes. In fact, it’s very likely that Leipzig will say he’s worth more. Just ask Liverpool, who have had bid after bid rejected for Naby Keita.
Making Inter sweat
Leipzig don’t need the money and they want to hang on to their best players ahead of their maiden Champions League campaign. United probably know this. In fact, Mercato believes that it’s all a bluff to make Inter Milan sweat.
Ivan Perisic has been a top target for United this summer but Inter’s valuation of the Croatian is preventing a deal from being struck. Perhaps seeing that United have other targets will make Inter change their tune.
