£35m fee for former Aston Villa star as Manchester United plot transfer


Manchester United will move for Idrissa Gueye as part of a massive transfer shake-up at Old Trafford, according to reports.

Everton boss Marco Silva was asked last month about Gueye’s response to that failed move. He said: “Firstly, he showed me and all of you how he is a good professional.

“Sometimes, when you have an opportunity in your mind but you lose it because you have a contract with the club and you are an important player for that club, and you miss out on what could be your dream, sometimes it is not easy for a player.

“He is showing how he is a good professional and how he is working really hard.  He is having a very good season, his best season at Everton.  He is improving, knowing better what I want coming from a player in his position.”
