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.
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?
