REVEALED: Man Utd made Everton approach for hat-trick hero Calvert-Lewin

Manchester United considered a bid for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin earlier this summer.

The Sun says Everton slapped an £80m price tag on Calvert-Lewin.

And that was BEFORE he became the youngest English ace to score a hat-trick for the club in Saturday's 5-2 win over West Brom.

It is also why United backed off in their pursuit of the striker, 23.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer targeted Calvert-Lewin in this summer's window.

But when United made an inquiry about the player, who cost only £1.5m from Sheffield United four years ago, they were stunned by the Goodison valuation.
