Ed Woodward reportedly disappointed Josh King when he failed to table an improved bid for the former Manchester United player on the January transfer deadline day. According to reports, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was keen on signing the striker, instead, the club made a move for Odion Ighalo on loan from Shanghai Shenhua.
According to reports, Manchester United tabled an offer worth 25 million pounds but it was rejected by the Cherries. Bournemouth may have accepted a bid of 30 million pounds.
Manchester United’s bid for Josh King was earlier rejected by Bournemouth, as the Cherries considered the striker a vital cog in their relegation battle and it would be difficult to find a replacement before the transfer deadline. The Old Trafford side reportedly made a £27 million bid for the striker, which was rejected by Bournemouth. King has made a name for himself at Bournemouth in the Premier League, scoring 45 goals in 151 appearances.
