A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes mentioned that Manchester United are among the clubs hoping to sign Real Betis ace Nabil Fekir. It has been claimed that the Red Devils could face competition in the form of Newcastle United and Leicester City in the race to land the France international.

Fekir’s Impressive Form For Real Betis This Season

Fekir is having a decent campaign in Spanish football as he has managed to put in a run of impressive performances for Betis in the final third. The 29-year-old has registered six goals and three assists in 19 appearances for his current employers this season on all fronts.

The French sensation has given a good account of himself in the opponent’s half by averaging 1.7 shots, 1.5 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga. He has even been tidy when interchanging possession with his teammates on the attacking end of the field, based on his pass completion rate of 83.8% in league football (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at the Spanish club is set to run out in the summer of 2026. Thus, Man United will have to launch a sizable offer if they want to bring Fekir to Old Trafford at the end of this season.

Is Fekir A Decent Option For Manchester United Boss Erik Ten Hag?

Fekir is proficient at engineering space for himself to get a few strikes in at goal. He has got the vision to orchestrate some meaningful chances for his teammates up top and can shoot the ball with venom from long range.

The French talent remains a good dribbler with the ball at his feet and can contribute by scoring and creating his fair share of goals in the final third. He mainly functions in the number ten position but can also operate as a winger on either flank if asked to do so.

At the moment, Fekir is playing some of the best football of his playing career. Hence, he could be a decent option for Man United head coach Erik ten Hag to consider in the summer.

We can expect Fekir to add more goals and creativity to ten Hag’s attack at Old Trafford and has what it takes to help the Mancunian side challenge for major honours in the coming seasons. However, only time will tell whether he can cope with the physical side and high intensity of English football if the Red Devils can devise a way to get him on board.
