Everton set Idrissa Gueye asking price amid Man United links

Everton name their price for Gueye

Everton have reportedly set their asking price for midfielder Idrissa Gueye, amid rumoured interest from Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s Manchester United.

Gueye has been brilliant for the Toffees over the past couple of seasons.

The midfielder is one of the best tacklers in the Premier League, finishing this past season joint-top in tackles made, alongside Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi.

As a result of his performances, Paris Saint-Germain moved to sign the player in the January transfer window.

However, Everton stood firm and were not open to selling Gueye.

Now, with interest in Gueye set to continue this summer, Everton have set their asking price.

However, it appears to be putting teams off signing the Senegalese midfielder.

Manchester United put off by valuation

According to the Liverpool Echo, Everton have set a £35 million asking price for Gueye.

Considering the player is already 29-years-old, that is a pretty hefty investment for any side.

The Echo’s report continues by explaining that Manchester United have now been put off by Gueye’s valuation.

Their report claims that ‘United rate Gueye highly and reports have strongly linked them with a move but the Red Devils are unlikely to take their interest further as long as Everton stand firm on their price.’

There is no mention of whether Paris Saint-Germain could reignite their interest in the player this summer.

Should Man United decide against meeting Everton’s valuation for Gueye, he could well remain at Goodison for another season.

The midfielder has three years left on his current deal.
