Marco Silva confirms Everton rejected PSG’s bid for Gueye
Everton manager Marco Silva confirms that Everton rejected a £22m bid by Paris-Saint Germain for midfielder Idrissa Gueye.
Though, they are in cruise-control in the Ligue 1, the Parisians are short on options in the midfield department. Lassana Diarra is considering early retirement, while Adrien Rabiot’s situation well-known to us. Marco Verratti has injured himself severely, almost ruling him out of the Champions League tie against Manchester United.
Hence, they dipped in the market to buy some reinforcements and bid for Gueye. But, speaking in a news conference, Toffees manager Marco Silva said: “We have rejected the offer.
“He is a really important player to us, we don’t put [players] on the market.
“For clubs to buy our players, they have to look for the value of the player. I cannot see this price as the right value for the player.
“You know my opinion since the first day you started speaking about this possible offer.
“From a technical point of view, as a manager, he is a really important player for us, and he is one player we don’t think to lose in this market.
“Of course, after some moments it is a matter of money and it is up to the club to decide, but from my technical point of view he is a player who is really important for us.”
Everton play Huddersfield Town tomorrow night in hope to get back to winning ways after receiving the FA Cup shock from Millwall over the weekend.
