Montpellier ready to sell Man Utd target for £15m

The 23-year-old has been strongly linked with a January move to Premier League giants Manchester United.

The midfielder dubbed ‘the new Zidane’, has been in excellent form for Montpellier this season.

Fernandez told Reuters: “He is an intelligent boy who is enjoying a good season.

“Now, if in the winter transfer window Manchester United offer €18m (£15m) as I have read, he must go.

“Although that would kill the team, one cannot refuse an offer like that.”
