Manchester United have been told it will cost them at least £30 million if they want to stand any chance of signing Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke during the summer transfer window, the Metro reports.

The Red Devils are looking to bring in some new firepower over the summer with both Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao failing to reach the levels expected of them this term, and manager Louis Van Gaal is believed to have identified Benteke as a possible target.
But Villa aren’t looking to let the Belgian goal machine move on, and have thus slapped a massive £30 million price tag on his head in order to deter United from getting any smart ideas.
Van Gaal is thought to be a big fan of Benteke’s, but whether he rates him as being worth a cool £30m remains to be seen.
