Manchester United Prepared To Trigger Wissam Ben Yedder's £35.9 Million Release Clause

Manchester United are reportedly willing to pay the £35.9 million release clause for Sevilla striker Wissam Ben Yedder.

According to ABC de Sevilla, via France Football, United have identified the 28-year old as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku if the Belgian leaves Old Trafford this summer.

Ben Yedder was in blistering form for the Andalusian outfit last term, notching 30 goals and 11 assists in 54 games in all competitions for a team that finished in sixth place in La Liga.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be a fan of the France international and feels he could be the perfect fit to lead the line should Lukaku be on the move.

He still has two years on the contract he signed when he joined from Toulouse in a €9 million deal in 2016 but has already admitted his interest in playing at the top level of European football.

"I dream of playing at the highest level, in the biggest clubs in the world and being next to world class players," Ben Yedder said earlier this month, in quotes cited by ABC de Sevilla, via Football Espana.


"I want to see how far I can go and it is the right time (to leave), as they say.

"I cannot be disrespectful to the club, whatever the final decision, I'll be fine, I'm not worried about my future.

"I will take stock after the international fixtures, but it will also be Sevilla who decide."


Ben Yedder has previous with United having come on as a substitute and scored a brace inside four minutes at Old Trafford in 2017 to knock United out of the Champions League.
