Pole position: Man Utd now leading race to sign “dominant” 6 ft 3 giant; club scouts love him 

Posted by

According to rumors, Manchester United is in a strong position to sign AS Monaco defender Axel Disasi to a contract with the Premier League.

What has changed since Disasi joined Man United?

Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof will reportedly both be put up for sale in the summer, and because Phil Jones will also be out of contract at the end of the current campaign, Erik Ten Hag will be searching for new center defenders. The Frenchman’s deal at the Louis II Stadium won’t expire for another two years, but after appearing in all 31 Ligue 1 games this year, the Old Trafford leadership has taken notice of his remarkable achievements.

According to reports, the 25-year-old will be highly sought after by the Red Devils during the forthcoming transfer window. According to transfer source Dean Jones, “initial conversations” about a trade have been “positive.”

Manchester United is currently “leading the race” to sign Disasi before the 2023–24 season, according to Football Insider. The other two probable suitors, Manchester City and Chelsea, have “registered an interest,” but Ten Hag’s team is the “favorite” over their rivals.

This season, the M16 team “sent multiple scouts” to observe the center-back in action, and it is reported that club administrators have returned with “positive reports.” His “star with huge potential” status in the hiring department has made him the “first-choice defensive target” for the summer.

Would Disasi be a wise addition to Man United’s roster?

Standing at 6 feet 3 inches, Disasi has been praised as a “dominant” center-back by talent scout Jacek Kulig for his physical presence. He would undoubtedly be a great addition to strengthen the United backline.

According to WhoScored, the Gonesse native is now averaging 3.1 clearances and 2.6 aerial wins per league game, demonstrating his strength in keeping the ball out of harm’s way while also being in control with the ball in his hands. The behemoth, who earns £18k per week, rates in the 96th percentile among center backs for progressive passes, demonstrating his poise and composure while playing out from the back. According to FBRef, he is also cool in the tackle, having won 18 of the 26 challenges this season.

Disasi has registered 10 goal contributions (six goals and four assists) in all competitions this season, which are fantastic stats for a central defense, making this move even easier to accomplish. Disasi also has the capacity to pose a significant threat in the final third.
