Manchester United have been linked with Jules Kounde lately and the latest reports going on in the media are intriguing.

The renowned news source have mentioned that Real Madrid would be looking to replace Ramos, who will be out of contract in the summer, but they will not be able to reach the figure of 70 million euros that the Red Devils could offer
La Razon further state that after losing out on Upamecano, PSG could look to activate 90 million euros release clause in Kounde’s contract to hire his services but the French champions would only be able to offer such an amount if they end up selling Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
As per a report covered by Sport yesterday, the former Monaco forward has decided to stay put this summer, play one more year for Paris Saint-Germain and then leave on a free transfer in 2022.
After the game against West Brom, Old Trafford legend Gary Neville heavily criticized the central defensive partnership at Man Utd and stated (MNF via The Mail):
“I want to make a point on Lindelof. Lindelof’s problem is Maguire, Maguire’s problem is Lindelof.”
Yesterday, we did publish a story explaining how well Jules Kounde has performed for Sevilla under the management of former Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui. The question is, is the 22-year-old good enough to strengthen Solskjaer’s defense?
Harry Maguire is not good at all to be a Manchester United FC player talk less of being the club’s captain. He’s too slow and sluggish,plays to the gallery and plays to suit himself, his rate of recovery very poor. O.G.S should look for a better central defender to pair Baily and Lindelof Maguire is not a good defender. He’s another Alexis Sanchez in the team. United board should dispose him and see it as another misbuy player. He doesn’t even know what it means to be a team’s captain, issues arises on the field of play,he won’t talk, Bruno Fernandez will be the one defending and agitating for the team,does it mean being a captain is just to wear the band??? Common let’s be realistic ! the band should be taken away from him and given to Bruno and David De Gea as the assistant captain. Most of the goals conceded so far has been caused by Maguire with his shambolic way of defending whereby he ended up putting the goal keeper under unnecessary pressure.
