Man Utd 'closely watching' La Liga wonderkid with €100m release clause
| Last updated
Manchester United are reportedly "closely watching" one of La Liga's most exciting talents.
There were four new arrivals at Old Trafford in the summer transfer window, including the loan captures of Sergio Reguilon and Sofyan Amrabat on deadline day.
Mason Mount, Rasmus Hojlund and Andre Onana were among the big-money arrivals in Erik ten Hag's side.
However, a new report claims that United have interest in Valencia's Javi Guerra. MARCA say the 20-year-old's performances have caught the eye of United, but also fellow Premier League side Newcastle United.
Guerra made his professional debut with Los Che earlier this year and was rewarded with a new contract just a month later.
The midfielder is now sporting the No.8 shirt and has started the new season in stunning fashion, with three goals and one assist in six games.
United are said to be keen, with MARCA using the term "very close monitoring" and stating that they have scouts watching every game he plays.
The Red Devils are said to consider the Spain Under 21 international a "top player". Guerra is tied down until 2027 and his deal contains a €100 million release clause.
However, United believe they could get him for a little cheaper given the fact that Valencia are in a poor financial situation.
They narrowly avoided relegation to the Segunda division by two points last season but have started the new campaign well under Ruben Baraja, currently occupying sixth place with three wins, one draw and two losses in six matches.
