Manchester United are in the market for a new centre-back this summer and there is another name to add to the list of potential targets.
As things stand, Stretty News understands that United are making moves to sign Ajax defender Jurrien Timber, but Villarreal’s Pau Torres is another defender that is highly rated by the Red Devils.
United looked at the Spain international last summer but opted to move for Raphael Varane intead.
Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport report on Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in Alessandro Bastoni and suggest United are also interested in a move for the Inter Milan defender.
I don’t see any harm in having a big list of targets because it should strengthen United’s position at the negotiation table and make us less desperate as a result.
A deal for Timber could happen soon.
New manager Erik ten Hag will have a big decision to make with Harry Maguire next season. The skipper underperformed this season and could lose the captain’s armband.
