Manchester United get green light to bid for Saido Berahino

Manchester United have been put on red alert after West Brom manager Tony Pulis admitted that he is ready to sell Saido Berahino this summer.

The Manchester Evening News claims both United and City are considering a move for the England Under-21 international.

Berahino took his tally to 20 goals for the season with a brace against Chelsea on Monday night and has been tipped to leave the Hawthorns in a big money deal.

Pulis, who has helped to safeguard West Brom's status as a Premier League club, has admitted he is powerless to stop the 21-year-old leaving if a big offer comes in.

"If he plays well at this club then a top four club might come in and West Brom will not stop him as long as the deal is right," he told the same report.

Ready to sell

"We hope and pray he stays with us because he has a lot more to come and we don't think he is at the end of his development.

"If a top four club comes in and the clubs agree a fee and it's all done, everyone can shake hands and say what a great job he has done for the club.

"Not only has he been here since he was a young lad and we have looked after him, but the club have made money on him and we have to reinvest in other people - that's a fact of life."


Berahino is a good player, but he has certainly yet to prove that he is up there with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Luke Shaw.

Certainly, a move to one of the Premier League's top clubs could aid his development but it is more likely to harm it by reducing the amount of first-team football he plays.

He could benefit from one more season as a key player for the Baggies before moving next summer, but try convincing him to reject a lucrative contract at Manchester United.


Is Berahino good enough to play for the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City?

Should he stay at West Brom for one more season?
