Aberdeen have missed the chance to cash in on Ryan Fraser after reported interest from Manchester United fell through (Daily Record).

The report claims that Manchester United were interested in Bournemouth winger Fraser’s services last month. He has less than six months to run on his Cherries deal.

Last season saw him go second in the Premier League’s assists charts, only beaten to top spot by Eden Hazard. This season though, he has one goal and three assists. A clearly talented player, United were still seemingly interested in the Scotland international.

Manchester United could have bagged Dons £3 million

Bournemouth were seemingly set to part with Fraser for £15 million if bids came in. It was a transfer that would have landed Aberdeen £3 million, as they have a 20% sell-on clause in Fraser’s Cherries deal.

When the winger joined Bournemouth from Pittodrie, that clause was put in his deal so that Aberdeen could potentially cash in further down the line. Interest from United though eventually fell flat.

It means that with his deal coming to a close, Aberdeen will likely miss out on a hugely beneficial cash sum. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted to strengthen his attack and an enquiry about Fraser was made.

But a move didn’t materialise and the former Don looks set to leave Bournemouth for nothing.
