Peterborough United open to selling Boro transfer target
Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony has revealed that the club will sell Boro target Ivan Toney in the summer.
Toney has been impressive this season, dominating League One defences and leading the scoring tables, netting 26 times this season.
Despite controversially missing out on a play-off place, Peterborough owner Darragh MacAnthony has confirmed they will stick to their word, but only for the right price.
Speaking to reporters he revealed that the club would only sell at the right price.
"We had multiple players trying to buy him in January and we promised Ivan if we weren’t in the Championship next season we would sell him. We don't sell our players cheap, the pandemic won’t change that."
"I can envisage he'll go top two or three in the Championship or bottom-half Premier League clubs. Some of the Premier League clubs might not do a lot of European shopping and look to the lower leagues and Ivan’s physicality suits the top level."
Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate is an admirer of the forward and the club could look to swoop in this summer.
Toney is reportedly valued at around £12 million which would be a major challenge for cash strapped Boro.
