CONFIRMED: Mykhailo Mudryk targeted by two Premier League giants
Mykhailo Mudryk enjoys specific interest from Manchester City and Arsenal. This fact was confirmed by the deputy sports director of Shakhtar Donetsk – Carlo Nicolini.
The 21-year-old winger was set to leave the ranks of the Miners last summer and looked very favorably at the possibility of continuing his career with Bayer Leverkusen. The club from Germany was not eager to meet the expectations of Shakhtar Donetsk, who expected at least EUR 20 million for his pupil.
Now the Bundesliga team may regret this decision, because the value of the offensive player has increased significantly and he is enjoying the interest of the top European teams.
This fact was confirmed in an interview with CalcioMercato.it by the deputy sports director of the Ukrainian team and openly admitted that Manchester City and Arsenal express the will to cooperate with Mykhailo Mudryk.
– The lights are now directed at him. Italians began to express interest in him late. It’s easy to observe him now, but they might have started doing it sooner. Now they offer us poor conditions and we don’t even sit down to negotiate. There are a lot of English bands looking to get it. We also know about the club from Spain and France, but now we need an appropriate amount to convince us to sell it. Along with Mbappè, Leão and Vinicius, he is the strongest player in his position. Are Arsenal and Manchester City fighting for it? Two teams are interested in him, but there are also other clubs that could reach for him, admitted Carlo Nicolini.
Recently, there have been suggestions in the media that any team wishing to recruit a talented winger has to pay at least 70 million euros.
The representative of Shakhtar Donetsk confirmed this fact, revealing that 50 million euros would not be a sufficient offer for them to bother with it at the club.
– Is EUR 40 million enough? No, we’re not talking about these numbers anymore. Even 50 million euros is not enough. With such a proposal, we do not even call the president to inform him about the offer. We value Mudryk more than Antony from Manchester United, who cost 100 million euros – added the deputy sports director.
The winger has made eleven appearances this season, scoring six goals and seven assists.
