​Anderlecht director suggests Man Utd deal for Dendoncker imminent

Anderlecht sporting director Herman Van Holsbeeck has admitted that he would be forced to sell Belgium international Leander Dendoncker if any club make an offer in the range of £20m-£30m.

The latest update is certainly a boost for Manchester United, who according to multiple reports, are actively pursuing the midfield powerhouse.

Van Holsbeeck said: "We want to cherish him, but if a club is willing to pay between €25million and €35m, we have a problem.

"Against Man United [in the Europa League], he has shown twice that he has the potential to play at a top European club."

The 22-year-old has already made 126 appearances for Anderlecht.
