Signing a new central midfielder is Manchester United’s next transfer mission and the club appear to have several options in mind.
Manchester United are ready to explore the possibility of signing Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara in a bid to strengthen their midfield options.
That is according to a report by Fichajes, who report United could make a move for the Frenchman when the January transfer window opens for business in a few months time.
After a summer window to remember, United’s next priority is to sign a central-defensive midfielder, with the club having pinpointed West Ham United and England ace Declan Rice as their preferred option. Rice has been a long-term target for United and they are keen on luring him to Old Trafford next summer.
However, it is claimed United are also looking at 21-year-old Kamara, who is out of contract at Marseille at the end of this season, meaning he will almost certainly be available in a cut-price deal come January.
United, according to the report, are not alone in expressing an interest in the youngster, with both Arsenal and Spanish side Sevilla also keeping a watchful eye on his progress.
Despite only being 21, Kamara has already made more than 100 appearances for Marseille, highlighting just how much they think of him.
