Before the season ended in July, Manchester United had been in excellent shape. Many fans have been left impressed by their devastating line of attacking Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial. Last season, the trio scored 59 goals, surpassing even Liverpool trio of Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Famino.
Until now, United’s biggest stumbling block has been their leaky defence. Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s inclusion seemed to have strengthened the defense of Manchester United before devils returned to torment them in the form of the poor Victor Lindelof. The Swedish international has started to struggle with Manchester United looking very weak when facing strong and standard oppositions.
This has contributed to a strong call from United fans to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to find a top center back next season to pair with the ever-impressive Harry Maguire. Thanks to Lindelof’s lack of speed, the United Captain is frequently left exposed. United was linked to several defenders during the summer, but the signing of RB Leipzig Defender Dayot Upamecano is now confirmed to close in.
It is confirmed that Manchester United won the competition to sign Upamecano, who has been very impressive for the German RB Leipzig. United was in the run for the young French Defender alongside Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, according to a report by Tutosport.
The article notes that United is going to pay £48 million for the Defender who is expected to travel for a Medical to the Carrington Training Facilities after the contract has been negotiated between the two sides.
The deal is expected to be concluded very quickly with United who wants to finalize their business before the New Season begins.
