Jose Mourinho quoted 'insane price' for Anderlecht star Leander Dendoncker

Jose Mourinho quoted 'insane price' for Anderlecht star Leander Dendoncker”

United cooled their interest in the 22-year-old after the summer arrival of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, but the Manchester Evening News claims that Mourinho has made contact with Dendoncker's camp with an eye on a potential January move.

However, Anderlecht haven't had the best of campaigns this time around. But, given the tight budget at their disposal, the club are now understood to be open to the possibility of selling Dendoncker as they look to regain lost ground.

Anderlecht chief executive Herman van Holsbeeck said, as quoted by the Sun.

"If he continues to play like this, then in June many bigger clubs will knock on the door and he should not leave for the money either. A deal can be done if the interested club puts 25 or 30million euros (£22m-26.5m) on the table for him".

The Belgian midfielder confirmed the Red Devils' approach last summer, but admitted that United's offer was not concrete enough to push through the move. The midfielder has reportedly told Mourinho that he is seeking a new challenge in his career and will be leaving.

Dendoncker is a defensive midfielder by trade but has learnt to fill in the centre-back position pretty well for Anderlecht recently.

Dendoncker has made 154 appearances in five seasons at Anderlecht, scoring 10 goals and is in contention to make the Belgium squad at this summer's World Cup.

Despite their coach's public assertions, Anderlecht are aware that Dendoncker could opt to leave in January and they have already been working behind the scenes to identify a replacement.

Holsbeeck, however, was keen to address the latest round of speculation amid fresh interest from West Ham in the player as well.
