Club expect Manchester United to submit offer for Aaron Anselmino

Boca Juniors are waiting for Manchester United to submit an offer for Chelsea target Aaron Anselmino, with the battle poised between the two English giants.

According to Ole via Sport Witness, Manchester United are expected to make an offer to sign Aaron Anselmino, with Boca Juniors firmly expecting it to happen. Chelsea may have already submitted a bid to sign the defender, with the Argentine club seeking at least $25 million for the young centre-back.

Manchester United to make Aaron Anselmino offer?

The race for Aaron Anselmino is heating up from the English shores, as Manchester United and Chelsea are firmly trying to convince Boca Juniors to do a deal. The 19-year-old defender has barely made a handful of appearances for Boca Juniors but now finds himself in the thick of a transfer war between two of the Premier League’s biggest sides. 

Manchester United had earmarked a move for Anselmino when the season ended, as signing new defenders became a priority for their transfer chiefs. Boca Juniors now expects the Red Devils to make an imminent offer for the defender, although they are unsure whether they will come close to the asking price. 

Boca Juniors wants around $25 million, which happens to be his release clause. Reports from Argentina claim that the club is not expecting some of the interested suitors to match the clause but is certainly hoping for one of them to come very close to that valuation. 

Another report in Argentina claims that Chelsea have already made an offer worth $18 million for Anselmino. Boca considers it a good enough bid and is waiting on Manchester United’s response. It’s abundantly clear that both these English giants are keen on snapping up the 19-year-old defender, who has a big decision. 

Chelsea or Manchester United for Anselmino?

Anselmino will have to make a concerted and well-advised choice ahead of the summer, as the 19-year-old seems destined to land in England to play for either Manchester United or Chelsea. The idea of signing for either would have to stem from sporting reasons rather than be influenced by the finances on offer. 

Hence, Anselmino might be expected to join a side where he gets a fair amount of playing time with the senior side, which may help the Red Devils. Erik ten Hag’s side also have a healthy Argentine contingent, which might also come into the equation in Manchester United’s quest to sign the 19-year-old Chelsea target.
