Manchester United Want To Sign ANOTHER Defender Alongside Raphael Varane, It'd Make Them Title Challengers

Manchester United are ready to make an offer for Jules Kounde this summer, while also signing Raphael Varane according to stunning reports.


United have been linked with a move for Real Madrid star Varane all summer and it'll cost them around £50 million.

But the Daily Mail have claimed their spending in defence won't be over as they're weighing up a move for Varane's fellow France international Kounde.

Kounde joined Sevilla from Bordeaux in 2019 and has become one of the highest-rated young defenders in the world.

Still just 22-years-old, Kounde went to Euro 2020 with France alongside Varane.

Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have been linked with a move for Kounde in recent weeks.

He is under contract with Sevilla until 2024 but they're aware he would command a big fee should he leave.

United used Victor Lindelof alongside captain Harry Maguire last season and finished second in the Premier League.

When it comes to outgoings, the future of Paul Pogba is up in the air with his contract set to expire next year.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer discussed Pogba's future following Saturday's pre-season defeat to Queens Park Rangers.

"The talks are ongoing between Paul's representatives and our club representatives," Solskjaer said.

"There is always speculation about Paul and there are always clubs being interested because of course we have seen Paul at his best.

"I'm not in the detail of every single one of the discussions but Paul knows what we feel about it. I have enjoyed my time working with Paul and hopefully we can [continue] working together.

'All the dialogue I've had with Paul is he's looking forward to the new season."
