Manchester United have strengthened their attack already but they badly need to sort out the defense as well.
Defense was one of United’s weakest links under the management of David Moyes and even Louis van Gaal could not solve the dilemma.
The Dutch manager signed the likes of Shaw, Blind and Marcos Rojo but United’s backline remained shaky and on many occasions David de Gea’s heroics saved the team.
Hence, Manchester United need top quality signings for central defense and right back positions this summer.
According to reports, Man United are closing in to sign World Class center half, Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels. The 26 year old had an average last campaign but remains one of the best defenders in the world. As per Metro, United look set to complete Hummels signing for €27.6m.
Mats is not the only center back linked with a move to Old Trafford. Argentine Nicolas Otamendi of Valencia who has had a great last season with Valencia is heavily linked as well. Will be unbelievable if both sign for the Red Devils but such a scenario should be highly unlikely.
