According to reports from Germany, Manchester United have been given the go-ahead to sign Wolfsburg Kevin De Bruyne. The 24 year old midfielder who is valued at €50 million is also being targeted by United’s noisy neighbours after they failed to sign Paul Pogba.It has been reported that Wolfsburg are willing to listen to offers that match their valuation.
With Di Maria bound to leave in coming days, United are reported to be in the market for a player that can fill up the creativity void that Di Maria would leave. Even though United might complete the signing of Pedro Rodriguez from Barcelona, the signing of Kevin De Bruyne will still be very important. For one Kevin De Bruyne is a versatile player who can play quite a number of positions from striking, attacking midfielder to winger.
Having failed to replace Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao, former Chelsea man Kevin De Bruyne would be an ideal replacement and can be played in other positions if need be. The Wolfsburg man bagged a total of 16 goals and created 27 assists last season out of 112 chances which earned him the Bundesliga player of the year award for last season.
Manchester United has found in difficult to break down teams who park the bus in the past and are bound to come up against a lot of teams like that this season. With a creative force like De Bruyne in the team along with other creative talents already existing, United will definitely perform better against such teams next season. Kevin De Bruyne statistics is a proof that the Belgium star is worth the price tag and has a lot to offer Manchester United if signed.
