The actual fee United will pay for Anis Slimane

It was originally claimed that Sheffield United will sign Anis Slimane for a fee of around £2.3m for the promising midfielder.

The Star can confirm the Blades will pay less than £1m for the Tunisian international. Naturally, there will be add-ons which may raise the transfer fee, depending on the player’s performance.

Slimane featured 36 times for Brøndby last season registering four goals and two assists [SofaScore]. A question mark has appeared with several Brøndby fans claiming that he has potential, but he drifts in and out of games. To add, the midfielder only completed 90 minutes on two occasions in the previous campaign.

United are still waiting for Slimane to undergo the second part of his medical, but there should be no problems. The 22-year-old will likely be unveiled as a Blade this week.

Here’s a breakdown of what fans can expect from Anis Slimane:

Bénie Traoré could shortly follow, as negotiations with the Ivorian recently resumed following a tragedy in the 20-year-old’s family. Yorkshire Live reporter Nathan Hemmingham understands that the striker is the “closest” player to signing out of the remaining targets.

With a midfielder and a forward likely arriving in the next coming days, Sheffield United now turn their attention to adding a new left-wingback and a left-sided centre-back to the squad.
