“I have warned him not to join Manchester United, but he went and accepted their offer. Let’s see if his career won’t end like that of Antony and Casemiro,” Manchester City star Rodri confirmed that his £60M Spanish teammate has agreed to personal terms with Manchester United to join next week.

As per reports in Spain, Man Utd are preparing a £37.8m initial offer to sign Martin Zubimendi, who has a release clause of £50.5m at Real Sociedad.

The Red Devils are looking to sign a midfield partner for Kobbie Mainoo and the Spanish international is once again in the lime light.

According to Catalan source, Nacional, Jim Ratcliffe has prepared an initial offer of 45 million euros (£37.8m) to hire the services of Zubimendi for Man Utd in the summer transfer window.

The news outlet claim the Txuri-Urdin will only allow their prized asset to leave if the £50.5m clause in his contract is activated.

Zubimendi is a versatile talent, who mainly features in the No.6 role as a play breaker cum deep lying playmaker, but can also be deployed in the CM role.

In the last campaign, the 6-capped Spaniard made 31 appearances in the La Liga, and directly contributed in 5 goals.

He is part of the La Roja squad at the European championships so any move away from Sociedad will materialize after the completion of the competition next month.

Man Utd need a quality No.6., regista, to replace Casemiro at Old Trafford and Zubimendi would be a top signing to partner Mainoo in the center of the park.

In your view, should Man Utd activate the £50.5m clause to sign Martin Zubimendi?
