Sheffield United could be forced into low-ball Iliman Ndiaye sale with Newcastle keen

Sheffield United are facing up to a potential nightmare scenario involving Iliman Ndiaye this summer.

Ndiaye has emerged as the star of the show for United this season. The Blades remain second, but are under serious pressure from Middlesbrough just behind them.

Middlesbrough’s form and United’s blip has already got people worrying about missing out on promotion and what that could mean for United’s key players.

And according to Football Insider, Iliman Ndiaye could be first out the door in a bargain £10-15m deal if United don’t manage to go up.

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

FI claims United are confident of getting Ndiaye to agree to a new deal if promotion is won. However, if another Championship season is on the cards, then the Blades could sell for as little as £10m.

United’s board were believed to have rejected a £25m offer from Everton in January. The board are hoping Ndiaye leads the Blades to promotion, but the recent wobble has left it wide open.

Everton are once again interested, while Newcastle United and West Ham are also thought to be keen as well.

Sheffield United News View: Losing Ndiaye on the cheap was always the risk

There was no way selling Iliman Ndiaye in January was the way to go about things. United needed their best players for the promotion push and the Senegalese star is one of the top dogs.

With that, though, came the element of risk in that we could always lose him for next to nothing. £10m is nothing for a player of his quality. And if we do end up not going up, it will feel a massive kick in the teeth.

Hopefully, United can regain some form and fight Middlesbrough off. From there, Ndiaye either signs fresh terms, or we at least get some good money. That is, of course, if the takeover goes through. If that fails, then the whole scenario is one big mess.
