Manchester United eye summer swoop for impressive 22-year-old – Report

Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are delighted after their side knocked Tottenham out of the FA Cup, as Jose Mourinho could bring silverware back to Old Trafford. 

Indeed, the Red Devils will be desperate to bolster their squad in the summer transfer window after losing out to Manchester City in the Premier League, as many of our local Mancunians are wanting more success at Old Trafford. And, it looks as if United are already looking at potential summer targets, as according to SunSport, Manchester United are lining up a swoop for Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet.

Manchester United have put Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet on a summer hit list, as Jose Mourinho is already preparing for what could be a busy summer for the Red Devils.

The Frenchman impressed in United’s Champions League defeat to Sevilla in March and scouts have been to Spain to monitor the defender.

However, they do face stiff competition from Spanish giants Barcelona as they’ve already asked about the defender, who could cost about £20 million.

So, with Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo possibly facing a summer exit after an unconvincing season, perhaps Lenglet is the suitable replacement that Mourinho would like to slot into his defence at Old Trafford.

Landlord’s Verdict:

There’s no doubt that Clement Lenglet is an exciting prospect after an incredible season with Sevilla, so United will be desperate to secure his services in the summer to sure up their defence. And, with a number of defensive departures expected in the summer transfer window, bringing Lenglet to Old Trafford could see them challenge for the title.
