Manchester United have conceded goals on regular basis this term. Yesterday, they conceded three goals in the defeat against Arsenal.
With just four games remaining, it will be safe to say that the Red Devils will fail to qualify for the next season’s Champions League. Will Ten Hag be able to turn things around next season? Only time will tell.
The Dutch manager must sort out the conundrum at the back. The Old Trafford outfit have already conceded 51 goals in 34 PL fixtures and have kept just 7 clean sheets.
Man Utd need to replace Maguire, who has been extremely poor and reports suggest that Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger is on the radar.
According to The Athletic, the German international has decided to leave the Blues upon the expiry of his contract this summer. He earns around £90,000 a week and has rejected multiple renewal offers.
The news source have mentioned that Man United are keen on signing Rudiger, who is expected to make a decision on his next club in the coming days. The Kaiser is also wanted by the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juve and PSG.
The 29-year-old defender has been rock solid for Chelsea under the management of Thomas Tuchel. He was a key member of the squad that won the Champions League last season. In 10 CL starts, the former Roma man helped the team keep 8 clean sheets.
This term, Rudiger has also proved to be effective in the attacking third. So far, he has directly contributed in 9 goals (5 goals and 4 assists) in all competitions.
In your view, should Man Utd sign the 50-capped German to replace Maguire?
