The ways Man United should replace outbound Victor Lindelof

Jerome Boateng

With Bayern reportedly open to offers, the versatile German defender must surely be high up on the transfer agenda of Jose Mourinho.

Since his move to Munich from cross-city rivals Manchester City, Boateng has been a mainstay in a highly successful Bayern side, securing six Bundesliga titles, in a trophy-laden time at the Bavarian club. Boateng has great energy and ball playing ability, and is considered the perfect modern day centre back by many. He is 29 and ready to come in and make an immediate impact.

A centre back in his prime, the tough-tackling defender may well be the missing piece in United’s quest to close the gap between themselves and Guardiola’s Manchester City. Since the departure of huge names Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, who formed a formidable centre back pairing, United have looked to lack a commanding general in the centre back role, contributing to their perceived lack of success since Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013.
