Manchester United should make a bid for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to former Rangers striker Kris Boyd.
The Hoops splashed out a reported £9million to secure the 20-year-old Frenchman on a four-year deal from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2018.
Edouard spent the 2017/18 season on loan under Brendan Rodgers, scoring 11 goals in 29 appearances as the club secured their second straight domestic treble.
Since his permanent move he has managed 32 goals in 68 appearances in all competitions and Boyd thinks that he is good enough to play in the Premier League.
“Talk about playing with France, is it a possibility? Yes. Do I think he’ll do it with Celtic? No,” Boyd told Sky Sports. “That’ll be in back of his mind, he’ll need to make that move if he’s going to get in the French squad. I don’t think it’ll be January, but come next summer, if there’s something of £25-30 million, which is reasonable for me, I think this guy will go to the very top.
“If I was Manchester United, I would come in and give the £25-30 million in the summer. I wouldn’t be surprised if a Brighton or an Aston Villa come in and pay the £30 million for Odsonne Edouard and then he goes again.”
