According to Defensa Central, the Red Devils have entered the race to hire the services of the 23-year-old fullback from RB Leipzig.

The Spanish news outlet have stated that Man Utd are in combat with the likes of Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain to secure the signing of the Les Bleus defender, who is valued at 25 million euros (£21.4million).

Mukiele is a versatile talent. Apart from playing in his natural RB position, the youngster can also play in the central defense and even as a right winger if needed.

In the last campaign, he featured in 40 games for the German Bundesliga side under the management of Julian Nagelsmann and directly contributed in 6 goals.

This season, so far, he has scored a goal in the league and provided an assist in the Champions League.

Manchester United have Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot as far as the right back position is concerned. Do you think, they need to improve the position? Should Ole splash £21.4million to sign Nordi Mukiele?
