Manchester United: Red Devils in the race to sign Axel Disasi

Manchester United: Red Devils in the race to sign Axel Disasi - Manchester United News

Manchester United are ready to battle Tottenham in the race to sign Monaco defender Axel Disasi, according to a recent transfer report.

The Lowdown: Disasi impressing for Monaco

The Frenchman has become a regular for the Ligue 1 side, making 16 league starts so far this season and chipping in with three assists in total.

Disasi has also done well in the Europa League, scoring one goal, setting up another and winning 1.7 aerial duels per game in the tournament.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Spurs in recent months, but it now looks as though the north Londoners have competition for his signature.

The Latest: Man United linked with Disasi

According to The Daily Mail on Thursday afternoon, United are ‘eyeing a move’ for Disasi, with ‘multiple’ Premier League clubs in the race for the defender, including Spurs and West Ham.

He has won three caps for France to date, with all of his international appearances coming at the 2022 World Cup, including a brief cameo in the final against Argentina.

The Verdict: Good for squad depth

Disasi could be a strong prospective signing by United in January, providing Erik ten Hag with the squad depth that he craves at the heart of his defence.

It could further throw Harry Maguire’s long-term future at Old Trafford into doubt, with Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez already ahead of the England defender in the pecking order and the ex-Leicester man being touted to leave Manchester in recent weeks.

At 24, Disasi’s peak years should still be ahead of him, and he is someone who could potentially end up being Martinez’s long-term partner at centre-back for United, considering that Varane turns 30 in April.
