Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping to secure long term target Yoann Gourcuff this summer and will make a substantial offer for the Lyon playmaker that he has been monitoring for the last couple of seasons.
The talented box to box player has the ability to dictate the game from the centre of midfield and has been likened to a young Paul Scholes and the 24 year old is uppermost on Ferguson’s wish-list and some reports suggest that Gourcuff isn’t totally happy with life at Lyon and could be open for a move to the Premier League giants.
Ferguson is looking to build up the next generation of Man United talent as he sees a number of his established names near the end of their glittering careers and with this in mind he has identified a number of young additions to his Old Trafford squad and this process is evidenced by the signings of Javier Hernandez and Chris Smalling in the summer.
The club’s owners have reportedly promised significant funds to help the rebuilding process and a move for Gourcuff would cost around £20-24m.
