Manchester United must secure the signing of a top quality central defender in the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils have literally wasted two transfer windows but could not sign a single star who could be the leader of defense and replace legendary captain Nemanja Vidic.
Rojo has been decent in central defense but still United lack someone World Class to lead the line.
According to latest reports, Manchester United have been given the green light by Atletico Madrid to sign Brazilian defender Miranda.
The 30 year old has only featured in 13 league games this season mainly because of injury concerns but lately in the last 5 league games, the Samba star has found himself warming the bench in 3.
With only 18 months remaining on his contract, the Spanish champions want to sell him and as per the provided Express link, Manchester United are to take advantage and complete €27m Miranda signing as manager Louis van Gaal is keen to secure his services.
Uruguayan international Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez are forming a strong partnership in Atletico’s central defense and the right option for Miranda is to leave.
Whether or not Miranda can be the leader of Manchester United’s defense, only time will tell but United should not hurry in the summer as they will have more options and time to sign the perfect defender.
Contrary to that, if they are to waste time again then it is better that they seal deal for Miranda as soon as possible.
