Fallen Premier League heavyweights Manchester United are prepared to activate the €50 million release clause in defensive midfielder Thomas Partey’s Atletico Madrid contract, according to Footballghana.com.
Partey, 25, has grown into an impressive performer for Los Rojiblancos since the start of 2017/18. The Ghana international’s progress has not gone unnoticed elsewhere, with the Red Devils viewing him as an ideal replacement for Paris Saint-Germain- bound Ander Herrera.
Inter Milan and Arsenal are set to provide competition for the signature of a player who netted three times in 32 La Liga run-outs in 2018/19.
Any move has been eased by the existence of a termination fee that agent Jose Daniel Jimenez Pozanco confirmed earlier in the week.
“Inter is a top club, but I haven’t talked to anyone yet,” the Spaniard told passioneinter.com.
“The termination clause in Thomas’s contract is €50m, and that’s a cheap figure for a player like him.
“Let the season end and then we’ll see what happens “
Partey linked up with Atleti as a teenager in 2011. He played on loan at Mallorca and Almeria from 2013-15, before breaking into Diego Simeone’s first-team squad.
