Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Three-time European champions Manchester United will reportedly make a decision on whether or not to sign a new centre back this summer.

This is according to the report from the Manchester Evening News which revealed that the Red Devils prioritised the signing of a right-back over a centre back.

Manchester United are expected to unveil a new right-back this month after agreeing on a deal for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Red Devils will pay £50m for the England junior international including £5m in add-ons.

After the unveiling of a new right-back, Manchester United will decide on signing a new centre back.

A lot of centre backs have been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.

Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt, Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly, West Ham United defender Issa Diop and Leicester City player Harry Maguire are the major central defenders linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams this summer.

Recent reports claimed that the Red Devils had a £40m cash and player deal rejected by the Hammers for Issa Diop while Napoli are demanding a club-record £107m bid from Manchester United for Kalidou Koulibaly.

BBC journalist David Ornstein has confirmed that there’s a Manchester United offer on the table for Matthijs De Ligt who’s not keen on a move to Old Trafford.

For Harry Maguire, the Leicester City player prefers Manchester City over Manchester United.
