Manchester United are linked with numerous youngsters and Stoke City’s Nathan Collins is perhaps the latest name in the lime light.
According to an exclusive story covered by Football Insider, Man United have submitted an offer of worth £7million to sign the 18-year-old center back.
The Irish international made his first team debut last month and so far, he has made three senior appearances for the Potters.
Our defense was consistently shaky in the recently concluded campaign and we do lack a commanding center half in the back-line.
However, it must be noted that we have got ample depth in the central defense with players like Rojo, Smalling, Lindelof, Bailly and Jones around.
So, at the moment, signing an extremely inexperienced player in the form of Collins is not really required.
Yes, we need to improve our youth team but first, we need to resolve the major problems in the first team.
Therefore, a proven quality defender must be signed. Someone like Matthijs de Ligt would be perfect for the team and the Dutch international should be lured at all costs in my opinion.
