Manchester United have not reinforced their midfield department for over three years and now, they fear losing record signing Paul Pogba for nothing as his contract will expire in June 2022.
The Red Devils must improve things in the center of the park and once again, they are linked with French international and Monaco play breaker, Aurelien Tchouameni.
In the summer transfer window, the Old Trafford outfit were after the 21-year-old defensive midfielder and it was reported that he is valued at around 40 million euros (Duncan Castles).
More recently, Le Parisien have covered a story and stated that Man Utd are following Tchouameni and could move to hire his services in order to strengthen their midfield.
The youngster was a key member of the Les Bleus squad that lifted the UEFA Nations League trophy at the weekend. He put in a fantastic performance against Spain in the final and now reports (Sport) claim that Monaco are asking for a fee of 60 million euros (£50.8million) for their prized asset.
Solskjaer needs to realize that the combination of Fred and McTominay in the center of the park is not good enough when top teams have better players. Moreover, unlike rivals, the Norwegian manager is without a top play breaker.
Serbian international, Nemanja Matic is the team’s only specialist defensive midfielder and now, at the age of 33, he is just a squad player.
In your opinion, should Man Utd bid £50.8million to sign Aurelien Tchouameni?
