Manchester United Defenders Target Signings

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t impressed with his side’s defensive display and is destined to bring in at least one centre back in this summer. The Red Devils Chief Executive, Ed Woodward had already sanctioned a massive transfer kitty following an underwhelming season last time. United managed to secure a Champions League spot as they finished third in the Premier League.

Both Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have their fair share of problems and didn’t look convincing throughout the last season. Victor Lindelof would be needed a perfect partner to complement him at the heart of the United defence. While Smalling got shipped away, Maguire was brought in to partner Lindelof. Additionally, Manchester United have had issues in the wing-back position. Manchester United backline needs a proper leader at the back or rather a stable partner for Harry Maguire. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is has shown brilliant defensive ability but he is still developing as an offensive threat.

In left-back, Luke Shaw might never be the player that United thought he would be. Brandon Williams has quickly become a popular figure among the fans but he is right-footed and thus better suited to the other flank. It wouldn’t be surprising to see a new face take up the regular starting spot at left-back next season. As a whole, United need additional pieces to balance their defence and make it strong enough for title contention.

5. Kalidou Koulibaly- Centre-back – Manchester United Defenders Target Signings

Top 5 Manchester United defender transfer targets this summer Kalidou Koulibaly

Kalidou Koulibaly will continue to be a part of United’s target list even today and well within good reason. The Senegalese centre-back has been one of Napoli‘s best players and one of the Serie A’s best defenders. Even at 29, he could turn a team’s backline into one of Europe’s best simply with his physicality and dominant presence at the back.

Manchester United need to find a defensive partner for Harry Maguire to compliment their £85m signing from last summer. While Maguire is a very good defender, he lacks the pace to cover pacey forwards. That is where Koulibaly comes in to strike a balance. He could be signed for a bargain deal as the Napoli defender’s value has continued to dip in the transfer market. His contract with the Azzurri is set to end in June 2022 but it is definitely not worth £100m anymore.

The 24-year old Turkish player has already been linked with the Red Devils in the past. He has been rated as one of the standout defensive players in the 2019/20 season. He is quick, strong, good on the ball and also takes defending seriously. 

The highly-rated defender will be in huge demand this transfer window attracting interests from Premier League giants such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and a few more. At 24, he already has 28 caps, earned his call up after his first season as a senior professional and became the first Altinordu player to receive that honour in 78 years.
