Moussa Diaby news

Diaby wanted by Man Utd?

Manchester United are planning to swoop for Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby, according to Fichajes.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a summer move for Ajax's Antony, but a deal appears improbable at the moment.

They were hoping to sign him for €60m earlier this month, but the Dutch champions are now said to demand €100m for his services.

Due to the staggering price tag, United may look at alternatives, and Fichajes claim that Diaby has emerged as a top target for the club.

The hierarchy have already got the approval from Ten Hag, and it remains to be seen whether they can prise him away from Leverkusen.

Diaby is currently valued at around €60m, according to Transfermarkt. At that price, he could be a fantastic signing for the Red Devils.

Similar to Antony, he is a left-footed right-winger, but can play on either wing. On the contrary, Antony is a specialist on the right flank.

Diaby bagged a stunning 17 goals and 14 assists from 42 appearances for Leverkusen last term. He is already capped with France.
