As per reports going on in the media, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are fighting to sign not one but two Serie A stars.
Earlier in the day, we covered a report (via La Gazzetta Dello Sport) claiming that the Red Devils and the French champions are looking to lure Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
On the other hand, Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness) have revealed that Manchester United are prepared to go crazy to sign Kalidou Koulibaly but PSG are ready to battle the Old Trafford outfit.
The Italian source have mentioned that Napoli valued their center back at around 100 million euros before COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a lock-down. Now the prices are expected to go down.
Few days back, La Repubblica covered a story and claimed that front-runners Man Utd are prepared to offer 85 million euros (£74million), which should be enough to lure the Senegalese international.
I think it is about time that we focus on other key departments as we do not need to mingle with our back-line, especially the central defense.
In 2016, we lured a Ivorian center half in the form of Eric Bailly and in 2017, Mourinho signed Swedish center back Victor Lindelof from Benfica.
The duo have done well for us in the current campaign alongside the most expensive defender in the world Harry Maguire, who was captured last year from Leicester City and is now the captain of the side under Solskjaer.
So, splashing a huge sum again to sign yet another central defender makes little sense, especially when we have not improved our central midfield in the past 3 transfer windows.
After 29 league games, we conceded 8 more goals and scored 14 more goals last term as compared to this season. Therefore, it is evident that the Red Devils need to focus more on improving things in the attacking third.
