Man United keep a close eye on No.10 Ligue 1 striker

Wissam Ben Yedder is facing an uncertain future at Monaco. France international has no shortage of suitors in the ongoing summer transfer window and a possible move away from Ligue 1 could be on the horizon, with many English teams interested in his services.

Man United are among the teams keeping close tabs on his situation at Les Monegasques. Man United have been scouting the striker for a long time and could make an effort to secure his services, although they are set to face stiff competition from league rivals Wolves.


Formerly of Sevilla, Ben Yedder is regarded as one of the best goalscorers in France. With 73 goals in only 124 games for the French club, he has emerged as one of the favourites to be selected for the national team in the upcoming FIFA World Cup.

Wissam has a stellar record in Spain as well, netting 70 goals in 137 games for Sevilla. Standing at just 1.70m, the 31-year-old centre-forward might not be the tallest centre-forwards going around, but he can certainly make up for it with his tactical nous and ability to get into good scoring positions.

Such qualities have made him an invaluable asset to the Monaco front-line in recent years, though it appears his spell at the Principality club could soon come to an end. Man United’s interest in Wissam Ben Yedder comes amidst speculations over the future of Ronaldo.
