Manchester United were linked with a number of right backs in the summer transfer window but they failed to lure anyone to improve the position.
Reports in the media suggest that the Red Devils are now interested in securing the signature of AS Monaco’s Vanderson.
According to a story covered by Sport yesterday (news image provided below), Man Utd have already moved in to sign the Brazilian defender, who is a key member of the French side.
The Catalan news source have mentioned that Barcelona were looking to lure the South American in order to replace Sergino Dest but stepped back due to Monaco’s high asking price.
It is stated that the Ligue 1 club value the 21-year-old, who has a contract until 2027, at around 60 million euros (£53million).
As per Sport, apart from Man Utd, even Newcastle United have initiated movements to try to hire the services of Vanderson.
The youngster left Gremio and moved to France in the January transfer window. Last term, he scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists in all competitions and helped the team keep 7 clean sheets.
At Old Trafford, it is clear that new manager, Erik ten Hag, does not rate Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The English right back has warmed the bench under the Dutch boss and so far, he has only featured for 4 minutes in the Premier League.
United were unable to offload the former Crystal Palace man in the summer transfer window and it will not be surprising if the 24-year-old is shown the exit door in winter.
To replace him, should Man Utd splash £53million and sign Vanderson?
