The search by English Premier League club Man United continues for players that will turn their season around but they are only close to sealing one.
Man United are keen on a new defender that will partner Harry Maguire and have been linked with French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco star, Benoit Badiashile with their first bid rejected.
According to AS, the Red Devils had submitted an offer of £25 million for the signature of Benoit Badiashile but Monaco rejected it because it was £2 million short of his release clause.
This means the Red Devils can complete the signing of the central defender if they return with an additional £2 million bid as that is the only way they can land him this summer window.
The Spanish outlet also adds that Monaco are not interested in parting ways with Benoit Badiashile because they still have a big need of him but they will be left with no choice if his release clause is tabled.
One area manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will focus on in this summer window is the defensive department after seeing his team concede 36 goals in the just-concluded season.
However, we expect to see more signings from the Red Devils in the coming weeks.
