Man United looking to bolster defence with one of the world’s best centre-backs

MirandaManchester United desperately need changes to their struggling side this summer, a fact that’s become increasingly apparent to those in the Transfer Tavern, and another big-name target has appeared in today’s papers.

Gianluca Di Marzio states Manchester United have expressed interest in signing Brazilian defender Joao Miranda from Atletico Madrid, who’s approaching the end of a two-year loan in Germany with Inter Milan.

The Red Devils are keen to strengthen their defensive ranks, which have been leaky this season, and signing 31-year-old Miranda, who’s regarded as one of the best central defenders in world football, would certainly go a long way to fixing their issues.

Whilst Inter Milan have a obligatory clause to buy the player permanently from Atletico Madrid this summer, it’s revealed United could snatch his signature for a bargain price as Inter would be keen on a re-sale to raise funds for Roberto Mancini’s own planned transfer activity.

Miranda was a crucial part of Atletico’s La Liga winning success in 2014, where the Brazilian also helped the club reach the Champions League final.

United fans, is Miranda the defender you need? Let us know in the comments below!
