Man Utd urge Sevilla star Wissam Ben Yedder to be patient

Manchester United remain in contact with Sevilla star Wissam Ben Yedder.

The France cap has announced he's ready to leave Sevilla this summer and it's been suggested a move to United has been lined up. However, everything will depend on United selling Romelu Lukaku.

Estadio Deportivo says Ben Yedder would move to Old Trafford as a direct replacement.

The striker's Sevilla deal carries a €40m buyout clause.

Ben Yedder stated in June, "Yes, it's the right time (to leave) as they say. I feel it too. But I cannot disrespect the club.

"Whatever the choice, I will be fine."
