Man United must pay €25m for Ligue 1 starlet in January

Manchester United can snap up highly-rated Lille starlet Sofiane Boufal in January, but only if they agree to pay the Ligue 1 outfit €25million, as reported by Le Sport 10.

The 22-year-old only signed for Lille from Angers in the summer after his performances helped his old club secure promotion to Ligue 1 last term.

Boufal’s form for Lille this term –  he has scored five goals in 15 top flight appearances so far – has alerted a number of Europe’s top clubs.

Le Sport 10 claim Manchester United are amongst those clubs keeping close tabs on the winger, while they also claim Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, Valencia and Tottenham Hotspur are also keeping a close eye on him.

Lille are determined to keep hold of their man this season but may be tempted to cash in next summer, should an attractive offer come in.

However, France Football claim Lille could sell to the highest bidder this January and then take Boufal back on loan until the end of the current campaign.

Lille are reportedly demanding €25m for Boufal, but Le Sport 10 also claim they would accept an offer of €30m plus bonuses.
