Perhaps overlooked by many until Rio Ferdinand's testimonial, Sevilla's Geoffrey Kondogbia represents excellent value for money.
As reported by Jamie Sanderson of the Metro, the Spanish club has suggested he can head to Manchester United for £8.5 million. ESPN recently reported the youngster is in talks with various clubs, with Ben Jefferson of the Express suggesting Arsenal and Chelsea are leading the chase for the player's signature.
The defensive midfielder is not a like-for-like alternative to Fabregas, but his tackling ability and strength would be welcome at Old Trafford. He is a confident dribbler, backs himself to make difficult passes (as the testimonial crowd saw with the backheel inside his own box), and has plenty of improving to do before he reaches his potential.
United should absolutely strive to sign the French U-21 international. They lost a similar talent when Paul Pogba headed for Juventus, a player who would have slotted right in had he stayed. Kondogbia can do the same, even if he isn't the big-name signing many fans crave.
