Man Utd & Tottenham transfer target offered contract with £25m release clause

Posted by

West Bromwich Albion are hoping to offer Saido Berahino a new contract with the club with a £25 million release clause ahead of the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mirror.

The England Under-21 international is known to be unsettled at the Hawthorns at the moment, notably tweeting on transfer deadline day that he would not play for the club again under current chairman Jeremy Peace.

Still, the Baggies hope they can persuade him to sign a new deal if it includes a release clause, which could invite interest from his various suitors when the transfer window opens for business again in the winter.

West Brom turned down bids from Tottenham during the summer (via BBC Sport) and have been keen to ensure they get the right price for their star player, who really caught the eye last season with 20 goals in all competitions.

According to a recent report from The Times, Manchester United have also been monitoring Berahino’s situation, and it is little surprise to see this exciting young talent being linked with bigger clubs as his situation looks uncertain.

Both Spurs and United could do with more options up front, with the latter only having Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial as options for that role, while Mauricio Pochettino’s side found themselves overly reliant on the brilliant goalscoring form of Harry Kane last term.

It remains to be seen whether new arrivals Clinton N’Jie and Son Heung-min can revitalise the Spurs attack.
