Victor Wanyama is a defensive midfielder who can play in defence too. He is robust and due to his consistency, quickly became a fan favorite.
United are interested in the player and have been monitoring his progress for quite some time. Sir Alex Ferguson has sent some scouts to check on the progress and has received amazing reports about Wanyama. If Manchester United come calling, it will be very difficult for any player to say no. Based on the popularity of EPL and media coverage of Man United, Victor Wanyama may wish to seal a move to England.
Celtic, however, will not want to sell a player who has carved a place in the fans’ hearts. He has quickly become a midfield maestro for them.
United want to sign a player who can pass the ball, hold up play with his strength, tackle and dominate the pace of the game. Victor ticks all the boxes and is an ideal candidate. Sir Alex will also not complain about “no value in the market”, as Celtic may reluctantly sell him for around £8million. Whether he plays for Celtic next year or becomes a part of Sir Alex’s teams is something we have to wait and watch.
