Manchester United has had a mediocre start to the season and will need to bolster the team during the summer transfer window.
Although there are several talented players whom the Red Devils are reportedly linked to, signing a centre defender is their top goal.
The Old Trafford supporters are curious to see how Ratcliffe’s investment would affect transfer plans, according to today’s Manchester Evening News (news image supplied below).
Edmond Tapsoba is one of the top kids connected to Man Utd, according to the news source, and buying a quality CB is at the top of the team’s priority list.
During the summer transfer window, the Burkina Faso player—who Bayer Leverkusen values at approximately £43 million—was connected to the 20-time English champions.
Under the direction of Spanish manager Xabi Alonso, Tapsoba, 24, has excelled for the German team.
With two points more than the defending champions, Bayern Munich, Leverkusen leads the Bundesliga after 11 games.
Alonso, an icon of Liverpool, would undoubtedly not want to lose his most valuable player in the middle of the season, particularly to Manchester United.
While the finest days of Varane, Lindelof, and Maguire are long gone, Erik ten Hag needs a leader going forward because important CB Lisandro Martinez is sidelined by injury.
