Manchester United have already let in 13 goals in the first 9 league games and have a goal difference of minus 2.
The Red Devils are looking to reinforce their backline and have been tipped to agree the signing of Marc Guehi from Crystal Palace.
The Old Trafford club are keen on luring the England international, who would cost around £60million.
Former Premier League center forward, Gabby Agbonlahor, believes Man Utd should get rid of injury prone players and move to sign a top defender like Guehi.
The 37-year-old told Football Insider:
“Guehi is going to be expensive. Palace won’t want to break up that partnership with him and Andersen. “But I like him. He’s starting for England, he’s getting caps. He’s strong, quick, good on the ball. But Man United have got a lot of work to do in the transfer market.”
“Look at that defence. Varane isn’t the same, he looks like a 35-year-old. Casemiro isn’t the same. Martinez is injury-prone. Shaw is injury-prone. Malacia is too.”
In all fairness, Agbonlahor is right. To have consistency at the back, United need a consistent and solid central defensive partnership, which has not been possible due to persistent injury concerns.
Martinez is brilliant but he has spent a lot of time on the treatment table and same is the case with Varane.
Guehi has been top class for the Eagles but the question is, is he good enough for Manchester United.
In your opinion, should Man Utd offer £60million to sign him?
