Man Utd spent €50,000,000 to get Barca defender to replace Maguire

Man Utd sent an offer worth 50 million euros for Barca star, Andreas Christensen, to replace Harry Maguire, which is about to be sold.El Nacional newspaper reports, Man Utd has sent an offer to former Chelsea player Christensen, with an initial fee of 35 million euros plus 15 million euros in surcharges.

The 27-year-old centre-back has impressed at Barca, forming a good defense pairing with Ronald Araujo, after joining from Chelsea last summer.

The duo contributed to Barca’s 27 clean sheets last season, with the team winning the first La Liga championship in four years.

Xavi certainly wants to keep Christensen but does not rule out Barca agreeing to sell the Danish player to Man Utd, because it needs money to ensure the rules of La Liga’s Financial Fair Play.

Man Utd has added 3 contracts in this summer transfer, including Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund, but their purchases will continue as coach Erik ten Hag said.

Currently, the team is targeting midfielder Sofyan Amrabat (Fiorentina) as well as adding more defense, when Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe have left at the end of their contracts. Erik Bailly is also preparing to follow, while Man Utd is also waiting for a suitable price to sell former captain Harry Maguire.

According to the latest information, the Red Devils have just rejected a second offer to increase from £ 20 million to £ 30 million to buy Maguire from West Ham. The Old Trafford team want £ 40 million for the centre-back, which they spent twice that amount to bring back in 2019.

Harry Maguire was booed by the audience in Man Utd’s last friendly match before the new season, when ‘showing’ Bilbao the opening goal before asking Pellistri juniors to equalize in the 90+3 minute.
