Manchester United are sure to make a big splash in the transfer market this summer no matter what their Champions League qualification fate is and fans here in the Tavern are eagerly discussing targets, with a new centre-back featuring heavily in conversations.
So SporX’s report that scouts from the club were in Turkey to watch Simon Kjaer in action as Fenerbahce beat Akhisar Belediye 3-1 have generated some interest.
The Denmark captain is widely regarded as one of the finest players in the Super Lig and has been earning rave reviews for his performances this term as the Istanbul side chase down a Champions League berth.
SporX claim that scouts from Man United, as well as Manchester City, were in attendance at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium for the game with central defender Kjaer the player they were keeping an eye on.
The 28-year-old has had a somewhat nomadic playing career to date, plying his trade in his Danish homeland, Italy, Germany, France and Turkey along the way.
Manchester United’s best Champions League qualification chance this season is winning the Europa League – agree?
