Man Utd have Sevilla worried over Wissam Ben Yedder transfer as one person emerges key

Manchester United have emerged as potential suitors for Ben Yedder this summer, with the Sevilla star scoring 30 goals last season.

The France international rocked the Red Devils in the Champions League in 2018, scoring twice as the La Liga giants won 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Manchester United want Ben Yedder to sign as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who has attracted interest from Inter Milan.

The striker is hellbent on sealing a move to the San Siro this transfer window and recently talked up manager Antonio Conte – despite never playing under him.

Ben Yedder may even sign if Lukaku stays at United.

But Colina de Nervion claim that Sevilla will try to keep the 28-year-old at the club this summer.

It is claimed Monchi will be key, with the transfer guru poised to talk with the striker in a bid to convince him to stay.

United would be able to sign Ben Yedder on the cheap should they activate his release clause of just £35million.

Monchi will supposedly promise the forward role in his new project as he targets the La Liga title.

And, should he stay, he will likely play alongside the likes of Moanes Dabour, Luuk de Jong and Munir.

While United are looking at Ben Yedder, reports have suggested Old Trafford coaches are torn over how to replace Lukaku should he go.

They certainly think highly of Mason Greenwood.

The 17-year-old burst onto the scene last season when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as the club’s manager.

Greenwood failed to score but caught the eye in a 2-0 defeat to Cardiff on the final day of the Premier League season.

But United may also choose to play Anthony Martial there.

Martial was initially a centre-forward when Louis van Gaal signed him for United in the summer of 2015.

The France international flourished down the middle during his first season in English football, scoring 17 goals across all competitions.

But, when Mourinho took over, he was shunted to the wing.

The former United boss preferred to play Lukaku, Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford down the middle during his time in charge.
