Manchester United ready to offer €20 million plus player for 24-year-old winger

Manchester United is interested in Valencia attacker Goncalo Guedes, with Juan Mata expected to leave the club in the opposite direction.

Manchester United is willing to give up Juan Mata in order to sign Goncalo Guedes, according to El Gol Digital. 

Valencia forward has emerged as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's newest target as he attempts to boost his offensive options after finishing second to Manchester City last season.


        Manchester United is willing to pay €20 million in addition to Mata's offer. Valencia was hoping to offload Guedes in any case, following the attacker's mixed displays since joining the club in the summer of 2017.

        Guedes, in reality, holds the record for Valencia's most expensive transfer, having joined from PSG in 2018 for a sum of €40 million. Unfortunately, Los Che's bet did not pay off, as the Portuguese international struggled with consistency in his performances.

        The former Benfica sensation has made 136 competitive appearances for Valencia, scoring 23 goals in his four years at the club. 

        His 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons, in particular, were underwhelming, with the forward contributing to just 12 league goals in total.

        Having said that, Guedes' value has recently risen as a result of his success last season. He assisted on 11 league goals, emerging as one of Los Che's bright spots in an otherwise disastrous season. His contributions have not gone unnoticed, with Manchester United preparing to sign him.

        It is no secret that Solskjaer is looking to bolster his attacking options. The Red Devils already signed Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho this summer, much to the joy of club great Wayne Rooney.

        Guedes, on the other hand, will provide them with another dynamic forward who can emerge as a suitable alternative for Anthony Martial. 

        The energetic Frenchman has been linked with a move to Juventus, with the club also willing to let him go.

        United's choice to include Juan Mata in the deal is also not shocking. The playmaker's current contract at Manchester United expires at the conclusion of the season. 

        And, at only 33 years old, he is unlikely to play a significant role in the future, especially with Bruno Fernandes becoming a vital member of Solskjaer's creative unit.

        As a result, dealing with the Spaniard for Guedes may be a wise option, however, the transaction is likely to irritate Valencia even more. 

        Mata had spent four years with the Andalusians before moving to England. His Premier League expertise will undoubtedly be invaluable as the club seeks to reclaim its former grandeur in the coming season.
