Swansea willing to spend £5m on Nick Powell

Swansea City are willing to pay £5m to sign Manchester United midfielder Nick Powell on a permanent basis next season – although they’d prefer to take him on loan first.

According to the Daily Mail, the Manchester United youngster will be in demand this summer following an impressive campaign on loan in the Championship with Wigan Athletic.

The Latics would also take him back, but his performances have alerted suitors in the Premier League and there’s a feeling the 20-year-old former-Crewe starlet is ready to make the step up to the top flight. If Wigan win promotion back to the Premier League this season, and they’re still in with a shout, they would compete with the Swans for his signature.

Swansea would prefer to take Powell on loan for the season next term, but the report notes they are willing to make a £5m offer if United refuse to send him out again.

Much will depend on who United appoint as David Moyes’s long-term successor this summer. Reports speculate that Dutch boss Louis van Gaal will be the man to take over from interim boss Ryan Giggs, although Pep Guardiola is also reportedly a candidate in the wake of his comments earlier this week.

The former-Barcelona boss said that Bayern Munich must decide whether they are going to back him and his style of play after criticism following their humbling at home to Real Madrid on Tuesday evening in the Champions League.
