Manchester United considering swoop for £30m rated defender

If you ask the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern about where they need to strengthen in the next transfer window, they will tell you that the defence needs bolstering.

More specifically, they would like to see some top class full backs at Old Trafford.

According to a recent report, Jose Mourinho is ready to move for one.

The Daily Express is reporting that Manchester United are readying a £30m bid for Thomas Meunier.

The Paris Saint-Germain defender is one of the most highly rated defenders in the French Ligue 1 but he has found playing time hard to come by this season due to the performances of summer signing Dani Alves.

With the World Cup looming next summer, the Belgium international will want to be playing regular football at a high level to be considered for a starting spot in Roberto Martinez’s squad.

As a result, he might be open to this move.

The 26-year-old would have to compete with Antonio Valencia if he was to come in as a right back or Jose Mourinho might choose to deploy him as a left back.

So far this season, he has used a variety of players in that position and Luke Shaw’s future at Old Trafford looks bleak.
