Man Utd will still have to part with €35m to sign Hellas Verona star
Hellas Verona aren’t budging from their asking price for centre-back Marash Kumbulla, who has been linked with a number of clubs, including Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United.
He has generated pages of positive scouting reports through his displays in Serie A with Hellas Verona this season.
The centre-half has helped his side sit eighth in the Italian top flight, following promotion from Serie B, and Serie A clubs Inter Milan, SS Lazio and Juventus are all interested.
Apart from the Red Devils, he has also been linked with Premier League outfits Everton and Tottenham.
The changed landscape of football has led some teams to accept they’ll have to lower their valuations in order to secure sales of their stars.
However, according to an Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, I Gialloblu are not lowering their price for Marash and have set it at €35 million.
Inter have failed with an offer of €18 million plus Eddy Salcedo and it is unclear if any of his suitors will be willing to meet his side’s asking price.
Marash will be back in action this coming weekend when Ivan Juric’s side play host to Cagliari and talent spotters are sure to check up on him.
Meantime, Richarlison has stated that Everton knocked back offers for him earlier this campaign from Barcelona and Manchester United.
“There were lots of offers during the season, from Barcelona and from Manchester United,” the Brazilian said to YouTube channel Desimpedidos.
“But the club opted to keep me in the group and I didn’t want to leave in the middle of the season. It’s bad to leave teammates like that.
“Of course you feel impacted – Barcelona is one of the greatest clubs in the world, but I think happiness plays its part as well.”
