Fede Valverde is having a very good season at Real Madrid, to the point where he has knocked Luka Modric out of the team. Zinedine Zidane has given him his wings this season and he now seems vital.
Manchester United are one of the big clubs that have noticed, with comparisons between Valverde and ex Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in England.
The Norwegian coach wants two or three big signings and the midfielder is one of those names. However they now know at Old Trafford the operation will be almost impossible.
Madrid have declared the Uruguayan untransferrable, at 21 he's very important already and he has a release clause which reaches 500 million.
Man United know Madrid will not negotiate and so the deal is impossible.
