Manchester United have already improved their backline by luring Malacia and agreeing a deal for Martinez. Still, the Red Devils further want to strengthen the defense.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Old Trafford outfit are interested in hiring the service of Sergino Dest from Barcelona.
According to Spanish source, Nacional, Erik ten Hag has demanded Man Utd to pay whatever it takes to secure the signing of the United States international this summer.
It is stated that the Dutch coach does not trust the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot in the right-back/right wing-back position and seriously wants to lure Dest.
The Netherlands-born star, who can effectively play on either side of the defense/attack, regularly started for Barca when Koeman was in charge last term.
However, after the arrival of Xavi, he only started 6 games in the La Liga, warmed the bench more often than not and also spent time on the treatment table. Overall, he provided 3 assists in 17 league starts for the Nou Camp outfit.
Barcelona are after Azpilcueta and as per the Catalan outlet, the arrival of the Spaniard would push Dest further down the pecking order. President, Laporta, would be happy to sell him to United for 20 million euros (£17million) and for that price, the agreement won’t be difficult.
The 21-year-old was part of the Ajax squad in the 2019-20 season and was unfortunate not to win the Eredivisie title under Ten Hag as the campaign was canceled due to COVID-19.
In your view, should Man Utd pay £17million to sign Sergino Dest?
