The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see their side bring in a new defender this summer…
The central defensive duo of Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones have done well this season, but it seems clear that the pair are not destined to remain in Mourinho’s plans long-term, with a replacement clearly needed.
Indeed, it appears as though the Red Devils have found the man that they feel can fit that role. According to AS, Man Utd are keen on Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez, who is looking to secure more regular football – something that Mourinho can seemingly afford him.
A deal will not be easy to come by, though, with AS noting that Liverpool are also keen.
The quality that he would bring to the first team is clear for all to see, and the idea of him moving to the Premier League is certainly exciting a few of the fans in the Transfer Tavern. An expert tackler whom is also strong in the air, Gimenez is arguably the complete defender.
Our landlord thinks that he could be perfect for Man Utd – with Mourinho likely the perfect manager to bring the best out of him.
