Man United scouting excellent full-back to solve defensive crisis

van gaalManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern stayed in the bar for a lock-in last night, as they drank until the early hours of the morning to sink their sorrows after suffering an early exit from the Champions League.

Now with the hangover of a lifetime, they’re discussing what sort of players need to come in during the window and have declared their excitement as this potential deal.

The Mail¬†states Louis Van Gaal sent scouts to watch Marseille’s Benjamin Mendy in action against Rennes last week, as he looks to solve his full-back crisis with an experienced addition in the New Year.

United are keen to bring in defensive reinforcements after seeing Luke Shaw suffer a horrific injury in the opening match of their ill-fated Champions League campaign and Mendy appears to be top of Van Gaal’s wish-list.

Mendy, an extremely promising 21-year-old, has been linked with Arsenal in the past but United are now looking to seal the deal in the New Year.

United fans, is this a signing you desperately need or do other areas take priority? Let us know in the comments below!
