Leander Dendoncker transfer: How much Man Utd were told Belgium World Cup star would cost
LEANDER starts for Belgium in tonight’s World Cup showdown with England.
UPDATED: Jun 28, 2018
Dendoncker was called up to Roberto Martinez’s squad for the finals in Russia after making 44 appearances for Anderlecht this season.
The 23-year-old lines up alongside Thomas Vermaelen and Dedryck Boyata in defence as Martinez rings the changes against England.
Dendoncker is regarded as one of the hottest properties plying his trade in Belgium and he’s been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Manchester United are just one of the sides to have been credited with interest in signing the defensive-midfielder-cum-centre-back.
Leander Dendoncker to Manchester United
Manchester United were keen to prise Leander Dendoncker away from Anderlecht last summer before the capture of Nemanja Matic.
The Manchester Evening News claimed in January that Jose Mourinho had once again cast his eye towards the Belgium international.
United were said to have been in touch with Dendoncker’s representatives regarding a potential move to Old Trafford.
And Dendoncker will remain on Mourinho’s radar as he ponders how to bolster his squad ahead of next season.
How much Leander Dendoncker would cost
Anderlecht chief general manager Herman Van Holsbeeck revealed in January that Leander Dendoncker was valued at between £22m (€25m) and £27m (€30m).
“Dendoncker was already busy in the previous transfer period,” he said.
“But now that Kara [Mbodji] is injured, Leander is doing a great job as a central defender and we’re not going to let our star go. Unless there is an insane bid perhaps.
“These are matters that are discussed. A transfer for €25-€30m is possible, but then we also need a replacement right away.”
Who wants Leander Dendoncker?
Manchester United are not the only Premier League side to have eyed up Belgium World Cup star Leander Dendoncker.
Manchester City have been linked with a raid on Anderlecht to get him on-board too.
West Ham, meanwhile, have also looked at Dendoncker as they seek to freshen up their squad.
Watford were said to have been sniffing around Dendoncker before Javi Gracia was named as their manager in January.
