Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the latest news regarding Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey, and the majority are keen on prospect of seeing him in a United shirt.
It has been reported that there is a €50m (£42.7m) release clause in the contract of the Ghana international, who has excelled in a central midfield role under Diego Simeone at Atletico this season – he has three goals and three assists to his name in La Liga.
Watch the video below to find out what Jesse Lingard is like off the pitch in the latest Match Of The Bae with Emma Conybeare…
Partey is a physical presence who is tough in the tackle, and following reports that Paris Saint-Germain are eyeing up a move for Ander Herrera, whose contract is set to expire, the 25-year-old could be an ideal replacement for the Spaniard – although actual links with the Red Devils, such as a recent report from GhanaSoccerNet, seem somewhat tenuous.
He is also an astute dribbler and has the ability to break the lines with some incisive passing, so it’s no surprise that United fans on Twitter are getting excited over his potential arrival…
Thomas Partey is my number 1 target to replace Nemanja Matić this summer. €50m for someone of his quality is an absolute steal. Really do hope that we sign him.

Thomas Partey has a €50m release clause? Would genuinely be the biggest bargain of the summer. Add Bruno Fernandes too. We’re eating Gucci.

Man Utd linked with both Thomas Partey and Youri Tielemans today.
If that's the profile of player we're going for this summer, I am very for it.

This would be a good deal. He’s one of the finest midfield players in the league, vision, precision, tough on the ball and gives you goals.. Go for Partey!
