Crystal Palace set huge Marc Guehi price tag for Man Utd transfer as swap deal mooted

Crystal Palace will demand in excess of £65m for star defender Marc Guehi this summer.

The former Chelsea star has shone for the Eagles since moving to Selhurst Park three years ago for £18m. Guehi’s form has seen him emerge onto the international scene for England.

The 23-year-old shone in the Three Lions’ Euro 2024 opener against Serbia. Several clubs including Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have expressed early interest in signing him.

But Palace will remain firm on Guehi’s future. According to The Telegraph, they will demand at least £65m for his signature - only if he expresses a desire to leave.

Guehi has two years left on his contract and Palace are optimistic about keeping him, having also opened early talks regarding a new deal. Manchester United have reportedly hatched a plan to sign him though.

Reports suggest that they want to send former Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka the other way in a potential swap deal. In the meantime, Guehi’s England colleagues have been full of praise for him during Euro 2024.

Speaking after Friday’s game with Serbia, Jude Bellingham said: “He was brilliant. Brilliant. He picked the lines amazingly. He led against two, for me, really good centre-forwards at this level in [Dusan] Vlahovic and [Aleksandar] Mitrovic, two really, really tricky customers. It will help a lot when he has [John] Stones beside him, one of the best around. He was fantastic.”

Gareth Southgate also saved special praise for Guehi. He said: “I saw the player that plays every week for his club. Positionally sound and calm.

“Tonight was an even bigger test because, stature-wise, he’s not one of the biggest centre-backs going to be a lot of aerial balls in the box. He dealt with that really well. He transferred what he does with his club onto the biggest stage. He showed what a good player he is.”

Guehi could potentially retain his position in the side for England’s second Euro 2024 group game against Denmark on Thursday. That would see him earn his 13th cap for the Three Lions following his debut in 2022.

Away from the defender, Palace are also expected to field interest in a number of their other stars. Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise have both been linked with moves - Chelsea having renewed their interest in the latter following last summer’s failed move.
