Who is Vanderson? All you need to know about Brazilian star Man Utd are 'ready to bid for'

Who is Vanderson? All you need to know about Brazilian star Man Utd are 'ready to bid for'

Here is all you need to know.

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Brazilian right-back Vanderson, and here is all you need to know about him.

The 21-year-old was born in Rondonópolis and started his career at Brazilian side Gremio - Luis Suarez's current club.

He moved to Monaco in January 2022, where he has caught the eye of several Premier League teams.

Vanderson has made 56 appearances at the Stade Louis II, chipping in with three goals and seven assists since his arrival.

While he has also been deployed higher up the field by Monaco boss Philippe Clement.

The French side are in line to miss out on Champions League football this season, with third-placed Lens five points above them in the table.

And their failure to qualify could spark a clear-out of some of their best players.

The defender has now attracted the attention of Erik ten Hag, who is thought to be in the market for a right-back this summer.

Vanderson to Man Utd?

RMC Sport have claimed that United are preparing to make an offer for Vanderson. While several other Premier League sides are reportedly placed on red alert should he become available.

However, Monaco are in a strong negotiating position, with the full-back's contract not due to expire until 2027, and thus could demand a higher transfer fee.

Ten Hag has relied heavily on Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot at right-back this season, with the latter entering the last year of his contract.

However, Vanderson's arrival could spell danger for the pair, who might be shown the back door.

The club have also been linked with Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong, who has scored a remarkable eight Bundesliga goals from right-back this season.

Sky Sports Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg claimed that the Dutchman's agent, Jeffrey Lemmert, had held “very positive” discussions with United earlier this month.

The report added that Ten Hag “admires the player” and Frimpong is “open” to leaving Leverkusen in the coming months.
