Only Manchester City and Newcastle United conceded fewer goals than Manchester United in the last Premier League campaign.
However, the Red Devils still need to improve the backline to have a serious chance of challenging for the title.
Erik ten Hag’s men let in forty three goals in the league last term but it must be remembered that they conceded thirteen in just two away fixtures against arch rivals, Liverpool, and champions, Manchester City.
With Harry Maguire linked with a move away from the club after losing his captaincy, the Old Trafford outfit want to sign two defenders to solve the conundrum at the back.
As per an exclusive story covered by Caught Offside, Man Utd want deals to sign French duo of Jean-Clair Todibo and Benjamin Pavard.
The 23-year-old Nice central defender was a part of the Barca side that won the 2018-19 La Liga title but never got a chance at the Nou Camp.
He left the Spanish giants after making five senior appearances. However, he was highly impressive in the Ligue 1 last term. Todibo featured in 33 league games and helped the club keep ten clean sheets.
His current contract with the French side will expire in 2027 and as per Nice-Matin, a fee of £34.6m (40 million euros) is needed to secure his signature.
On the other hand, Man Utd are eager to lure Pavard, who has made it clear for some time that he wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer.
The Les Bleus defender won the World Cup in 2018 while mainly playing as a right back but last term, he mostly featured in the central defense in the Bundesliga winning campaign for the Bavarians.
The German giants reportedly want a fee of £30m from the sale of the decorated star in the current transfer window.
In your view, should Man Utd meet the £34.6m and £30m price tags to sign Todibo and Pavard?
