Manchester United needed to reinforce the backline last summer but they opted to splash the cash on the midfield, attack and goalkeeping departments.
Unfortunately, the Red Devils have even wasted time in the winter transfer window.
With multiple injury concerns in the defense and stars out of form, the Red Devils have to splash the cash to strengthen the department before the transfer window closes in a week.
Man Utd have been linked with more than a few center backs and the latest name in the lime light is that of Aaron Aneslmino.
According to PBJ, Man Utd have made contact with the agent to inquire about signing the 18-year-old central defender from Boca Juniors.
The news source have mentioned that the Xeneize will only sell the teenager in the final days of the January transfer window if the release clause of £21.4m (25 million euros) is met.
Apart from the Old Trafford club, even AC Milan and Everton are interested in signing Aneslmino from the South American club.
In the current campaign, thus far, Man Utd have let in 29 goals in just 21 Premier League fixtures.
In all fairness, they need a proven quality defender to reinforce the backline and spending £21.4m on an inexperienced player like Aneslmino, who has only made five senior appearances for Boca, would make little sense.
