Manchester United fans have been urging the club to sign midfielder Thomas Partey after his performance for Ghana.

Partey, 26, was in action for Ghana last night in the African Cup of Nations against Benin.

He was a starter as the Black Stars drew their opener 2-2.

Partey has been linked with a move away from Atletico Madrid this summer. He has a £43.5 million release clause in his contract.

United were said to be interested last month, by The Mail, with his agent pushing for a move.

 

Partey made 22 starts for Atletico last season, scoring three goals and providing four assists.

With Tottenham closing in on a move for Tanguy Ndombele, Partey could become a viable alternative.

His involvement in the AFCON will mean no move will be imminent. But then nothing is with Ed Woodward in charge of transfers.

You would think activating a release clause shouldn’t be too difficult for Woodward, despite his cock-up with Ander Herrera in 2013.
