Manchester United were ripped apart at Old Trafford by Bournemouth yesterday and once again, their defense was all over the place.
The Red Devils desperately need to reinforce the backline with a top center half and reports indicate, they are ready to submit an offer to sign Marc Guehi from Crystal Palace.
According to an exclusive story covered by Football Insider, United and Tottenham have moved in and registered their interest to lure the England international in January.
The news source have mentioned that the Selhurst Park outfit value their prized asset at around £60million. However, Man Utd are prepared to agree a fee worth £45million to secure his signing next month.
On Saturday, the Cherries scored three goals past Erik ten Hag’s men and the score-line could have been even worse than 3-0.
The Dutch manager opted to keep a proven center back like Varane on the bench and utilized Luke Shaw, a natura left back, in the CB role.
Shaw gave the ball away cheaply and then failed to deal with the cross that led to Bournemouth’s second goal.
On the other hand, Sensei was able to treble the lead for the visitors of a corner after he was left unmarked just six-seven yards from goal.
Last month, Man Utd defeated relegation threatened teams that helped Ten Hag win the Manager of the Month award and Maguire the Player of the Month prize.
The reality is that we are still an average side that needs major reinforcements, especially in the defense.
Man Utd must do everything to sign a top defender next month. Would £45million be enough to secure Marc Guehi from Palace? Only time will tell.
