From Spain: Man United “willing to do crazy things” to land “new boss in defence”

Posted by

Mason Mount’s acquisition by Manchester United from Chelsea has been officially revealed, but there are still several positions that need to be strengthened before the club’s second season under manager Erik ten Hag.

There was a lot of discussion about improving up front and at the back prior to the window opening, but so far, things have not gone as expected.

Harry Kane, the favoured striker of Ten Hag, was up for grabs, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy declined to work with a direct local opponent when Bayern Munich were now the clear favourite.

United require a new CB.

The German team has previously injured United. The transfer of Kim Min-jae, the Serie A defender of the year from Napoli, to Old Trafford was once all but guaranteed.

I enjoy stepping beyond of my comfort zone.

The Bundesliga winners made a higher wage offer just before the Red Devils could use the release clause, effectively winning the race for the South Korean.

Adding a new center-back seems sensible given the uncertainty surrounding club captain Harry Maguire’s future and Raphael Varane’s history of injuries.

Axel Disasi has been linked to United, but the Spanish publication Nacional (via Football365) has now claimed that United are “willing to do crazy things” to sign Real Madrid striker Eder Militao.

According to the source, the Dutch coach admires the Brazilian, and the club is “willing to satisfy the Dutch coach’s wishes, who wants Militao to become his new boss in defence.”

The rumours are “not surprising” in light of the 25-year-old’s performances.

shocking connections to Militao appear

The representative of Brazil played in 51 games across all competitions, scoring seven goals and providing one assist. He contributed to the maintenance of 20 clean sheets.

According to Transfermarkt, Militao is valued at €70 million, and his current contract is good through 2025. The Brazilian international’s injury history is also good; he missed just five games all of last season.

Even though United would adore a player of his ability, a transfer seems unlikely given the club’s precarious financial situation this summer.

Even if United were to add a defender, it would almost definitely cost much less than what Real would demand for their defensive captain.
