Manchester Utd To Finally Complete The £50 Transfer of This World-Class Defender to Replace Lindelof.
United looked very comfortable during the proceedings but their control of the match was undone by horrible defending by Swedish center-back Victor Lindelof.
Since his arrival from Benfica two years ago, Lindelof has continued to struggle against quality opposition with his mistakes costing United several times. He is no doubt the weak link in the United backline. His lean physicality and lack of pace have been his biggest undoings so far.
These frequent errors have forced United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to find a new Defender to partner the impressive Harry Maguire. Ole is said to be in the market for a young athletic center back who can provide quick cover whenever Maguire is carrying the ball into the opposition half.
According to a report by the Sun Newspaper, United and Ole have identified West Ham center-back Issa Diop as the perfect partner for Harry Maguire. The move has now received a major boost after a new report revealed that Westham had sanctioned the sale of the French Center back.
Diop has been very impressive since joining Westham with his performances often compared to Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane. At one point he caught the eye of former United manager Jose Mourinho after completely destroying United’s attack of Rashford, Ibrahimovic, and Martial at that time. Mourinho branded him a ‘monster’ after the match.
Westham is reported to be willing to complete a deal with United if a £50M bid is submitted.
