Manchester United have been linked with Aurelien Tchouameni for some time and reports suggest that incoming manager, Ten Hag, is eager to secure his signing.
According to ESPN, the current Ajax boss is keen on bringing the French international to strengthen the midfield at Old Trafford
The renowned media outlet have mentioned that Monaco are open to selling their prized asset and could demand a fee as high as 70 million euros (£57million).
Over the years, Man United have spent a lot to improve their defense but things have not been solid at the back.
The dilemma is that the defenders have been inconsistent this term and more importantly, the Red Devils lack a strong play breaker in the squad.
Veteran Matic is the only specialist/natural holding midfield player at Old Trafford and the Serbian has announced that he will be leaving the club in the summer. Therefore, a replacement must be signed and Tchouameni would be a quality addition.
The 22-year-old helped France win the UEFA Nations League last year and he is expected to be a key man for Deschamps in this year’s World Cup. Last month, he scored his first goal for the Les Bleus in a friendly contest against Ivory Coast.
Have your say – Should Man Utd offer £57million to secure the signing of Tchouameni?
