Manchester United have entered talks to sign Borussia Dortmund defender Dan-Axel Zagadou.
That’s according to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna, and, as to be expected, a number of United fans have been reacting to the rumours on social media.
How many signings do United need this month?
Zagadou is 22 years of age and is out of contract with Dortmund at the end of June. The French centre-back has made 80 appearances for the club, however, he has suffered from numerous injury issues, missing 77 games since 2017/18.
Despite that, it seems as if United are keen to take advantage of Zagadou’s contract situation, with Aouna revealing on Twitter that Ralf Rangnick has started discussions with the defender’s agent.
Dortmund want to extend Zagadou’s stay in Germany, but he is now free to pen pre-contract terms at Old Trafford.
United fans react
“A extremely injury prone CB? Please no”
“This can’t be true.. Very laughable”
“awful injury record NEXTTTT”
“He’d be our worst centre back”
“Just had a look at his stats….. this man is never going to be fit”
“A midfielder is more important”
