Manchester United have made a new centre back addition their priority for this transfer window and it’s not surprising that bookmakers Paddy Power have installed two defenders as the top two players to join the club in January.
According to Paddy Power via the Daily Express, Leicester City defender Harry Maguire is the overwhelming favourite to join Manchester United in this January transfer window at the odds of 9/4.
England international centre back Maguire has been linked with a move to Old Trafford dating back to last summer when Leicester City repelled several transfer bids from Manchester United for him.
Harry Maguire went on to commit his long-term future to the Foxes by signing a new contract in the summer of 2018.
Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld is the second favourite player to join Manchester United at the odds of 7/2 ahead of West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic (11/2) in third position.
Belgian international star Toby Alderweireld initially had six months left on his contract with the club until recently when his club activated the additional year clause in the contract to take him till 2020.
Toby Alderweireld now has a £25m release clause in his contract for interested clubs.
West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic has been linked with a transfer to Manchester United and Chelsea as he attempts to play for a Champions League club again.
