Junior Firpo

English Premier League outfit Manchester United are reported to be linked with the signature of Spanish La Liga outfit Real Betis defender Junior Firpo as they seek to land him in the coming summer transfer window.

Spanish Newspaper AS claims that the Red Devils have been tipped to land the star defender for a fee of £26 million as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already having him in plans for the coming season.

Last season was a difficult one for Man United in terms of their defence and that is obviously a major focus for the Red Devils boss who seeks to land new players for the revolting of his team.

Junior Firpo is known to be a versatile player who has featured at left and wing-back for Real Betis this season and that is needed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who only seeks for quality at the club.

The star defender scored three goals and provided four assists for the La Liga outfit this season which is a major boost to his career as he only made his first-team debut in February 2018.

However, the Red Devils boss wants add more quality to his team by making good use of the summer transfer window.
