Dayot Upamecano was a wanted man but Bayern Munich moved in quickly to get his signing done for the next season.
Manchester United failed to lure the French international but reports suggest that they are interested in hiring the services of his RB Leipzig teammate, Ibrahima Konate.
Transfer: Man Utd have made contact to sign £50million player – Face competition
According to Sport Bild, Konate’s signing can be secured for a fee of 45 million euros (£39million), which is the release clause that will come into effect in the summer transfer window.
The famous German outlet have mentioned that the Red Devils face competition from Chelsea and reigning PL champions Liverpool, who are also after the 21-year-old center back.
Man Utd do need to improve the central defense because currently, they lack a leader but in my view, they should stay away from Konate, who has been highly injury prone in the past couple of years.
The youngster only managed to start 6 games in the Bundesliga last season and missed majority of the campaign due to a torn muscle fibre.
As far as this season is concerned, so far, the French U21 starlet has only started 4 league games under the management Julien Nagelsmann and has mainly been out due to muscle and ankle concerns.
Therefore, Solskjaer should not move to sign Ibrahima Konate, instead, the Norwegian manager must look for a top star, who is ever present to command our defense.
In your view, who should Man Utd sign to strengthen their central defense in the summer transfer window?
Congrats Man.Utd, you all did it again. Excellent playing by Rashford, James and James is doing much better than Mason Greenwood and with no disrespect to Greenwood, James looks like he has been working hard to deserve to be in the first team. Shaw and Maguire, always playing their best. Greenwood needs to work on his possession of holding the ball when nearing the box.
Again one little flaw is when starting Man.Utd must try to be more careful especially in the box while defending, they tend to defend and by kicking away the ball straight to the nearby opponent who has more advantage closer to their goal to score it easily and that was one of the careless mistakes. Fred is also a very good player but he has to be more careful when especially in the goal. Good strikes by Maguire and Fred as well. They could get lucky with their straight strikes. Your games are getting a bit better everytime as you are playing and not getting worse and slow like before which a good sign of getting better and better. We enjoyed your game. Very proud of you all.
Make no mistake of sending off Daniel James on loan like Lingard. We need players like him, Rashford, Luke Shaw and McTominay etc who have got alot to offer especially with their speed and pushing forward. Can see they are the very fast forwards.
