PSG and Manchester United at Odds over Transfer Fee for Liverpool and Barcelona-Linked Player

Manchester United are considering Manuel Ugarte to bolster their midfield this summer. However, the Red Devils are at odds with the transfer fee Paris Saint-Germain command for the Uruguayan.

Ugarte’s agent, Jorge Chijane, told O Jogo that Liverpool are also interested in signing him. Moreover, the 23-year-old’s performance at the 2024 Copa América could be drawing suitors or cause the clubs keen on him to pull the trigger.

Moreover, a report from Le10Sport reveals that Manchester City and FC Barcelona have already made concrete moves in the Ugarte case. Should they want to land the 23-year-old, these clubs might also receive a boost.

According to journalist Christopher Michel, Manchester United are now pushing to sign Ugarte, but the French club wants £50 million, while the Premier League side believes £35 million is realistic. Still, Michel’s report states that the two clubs could meet in the middle.

Nonetheless, the previous report from Le10Sport notes that manager Luis Enrique must decide whether to retain Ugarte at any cost or agree to his departure for a substantial fee. He has the final call in this matter. Once Uruguay’s run in the 2024 Copa América ends, Ugarte’s future should be clearer.
