Louis van Gaal has been in search of a quality central defender since the summer window and it looks like the wait is finally over.
Last summer, the Dutch manager was eager to secure the services of German star Mats Hummels but failed.
Signing the Dortmund captain in mid-season was always going to be difficult hence United looked at other options as well.
According to reports, Miranda is set to sign for Manchester United with his heart set on Old Trafford move.
The Atletico Madrid defender’s contract will expire at the end of this season and as per the provided link, they will accept €25m bid from Manchester United.
Although Miranda has a release clause of €30 million but letting him go for free at the end of the season is surely not worth it and hence the Spanish champions are ready to agree deal with Man United.
The 30 year old experienced star was one of Atletico’s key defender last season that helped them win La Liga and reach the final of the Champions League.
Atletico have already lost their first choice left back Luis to Chelsea in the summer but Simeone has the solution to everything it seems and they can do without Miranda as well with Godin leading the line.
United and Van Gaal will hope that Miranda still has few years of top football left in him before they look for another central defender.
