Tottenham and Man Utd are both unwilling to pay Brentford’s £40 million asking price for David Raya.
Tottenham and Man Utd, both clubs are highly showing their interest in signing the goalkeeper this summer. Hugo Lloris likely to depart Spurs and David De Gea’s future at United unknown.
However, with only one year left on his contract and no interaction with the Bees, the two parties do not currently believe Raya is worth that money.
Brentford have already demonstrated that they will not sell a player for less than their valuation. Spurs, on the other hand, found out two years ago when they were interested in Ollie Watkins. Spurs wanted Watkins before he signed for Aston Villa for £33 million.
Brentford just bought Freiburg’s Mark Flekken, but the club is willing to start the season with three goalkeepers – current number two Thomas Strakosha, Flekken, and Raya – and let the former Arsenal target run his contract down.
Raya was desired by Arsenal three years ago, but Brentford refused to trade him as they prepared for another promotion drive, which was successful the following year.
When questioned about Raya’s chances of staying, Bees manager Thomas Frank said, “I hope he stays forever, but with the contract situation, it looks like it might be difficult.”
“He must be worth at least £40 million.” It would be £70 million if he had three years.
“How much did Kepa cost?” He’s at least on par with him.”
Tottenham and Man Utd are not considering to pay £40 million for Brentford’s Goalkeeper
David Raya spends a lot of time turning heads. He was doing it from the very first day he booted a ball on English soil.
After only one training session at Blackburn 11 years ago, the club signed the then-15-year-old from Spanish club Cornella for roughly £10,000. How modest that figure has become.
According to his manager, Thomas Frank, the Brentford goalkeeper is now worth £40 million. Raya, who is entering the last year of his contract, is expected to be pursued by the so-called ‘Big Six’ during the summer transfer window.
