Manchester United: Sky Sports drop on-air defender update

Manchester United: Sky Sports drop on-air defender update -Manchester United News

Sky Sports have provided an on-air update regarding Manchester United’s pursuit of a new defender.

The Lowdown: Still no signings…

The Red Devils are still yet to finalise a first marquee signing for Erik ten Hag, with time ticking ahead of a return for pre-season.

United have been heavily linked with a number of players, including Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, Ajax winger Antony and free agent Christian Eriksen.

De Jong appears to be the club’s main priority, although United are struggling to reach an agreement with the Spanish giants.

The Latest: Defender update

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth provided a live TV update on Wednesday afternoon, looking at defensive targets for the Red Devils.

He said it ‘may surprise some United fans’ to know that defensive reinforcements are the ‘lowest priority’ due to the number of players they have in that area already. Sheth did add that Ajax’s Jurrien Timber and Villarreal’s Pau Torres are of interest, but it doesn’t look as if moves for either are imminent.

The Verdict: Time for action

Gary Neville has admitted that he is worried that United are struggling to get business done early in the transfer window, and with Ten Hag set to report for pre-season in just 11 days’ time, the club need to get a move on.

A United rebuild is yet to really get going under the Dutchman, with exits for Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata the main transfer stories to report so far.

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The longer they take, the longer it could be until we see a transformation under Ten Hag, so multiple signings are needed over the coming weeks.
