Man Utd ‘weighing up’ a transfer £25m swoop for highly-rated Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou
MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly plotting a summer swoop for Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou.
The 29-year-old Moroccan international has been in outstanding form this term and is battling Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois to land LaLiga’s goalie of the season award.
Now the Daily Mirror claims that United could be readying a summer move to bring him to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils ‘have been watching Bounou for several months’ and they are ‘understood to have asked to be kept abreast of his situation’ at the Spanish club.
The star still has two years to run on his contract but he does have a release clause as part of his deal.
It is reported that a bid of £25million would trigger that.

But Sevilla are desperate to hang on to the stopper after becoming aware of the interest in the ex-Atletico Madrid and Girona man.
They are keen to extend his contract by a further two years and want to renegotiate his release clause up to £63m.
United also face competition from elsewhere for the keeper.
Atletico are keen on bringing Bounou back to the club while a number of teams from Serie A want to lure him to Italy.
