Manchester United’s defense was a major concern last season and if the Red Devils did not have a world class goalie in David de Gea, they may have failed to qualify for the top four.
Louis van Gaal only splashed the cash to lure one defender in the summer transfer window. Italian full back Mateo Darmian joined the Old Trafford club from Torino.
United’s defense started the season strongly with three clean sheets in the Premier League. However, after the horror injury to Luke Shaw, the defensive fragility is once again evident.
The Red Devils must sign a left full back in the January window and according to Mirror, Man United are monitoring Everton full back Brendan Galloway who has been impressive for the Merseysiders in the absence of first choice left back Leighton Baines.
The 19-year-old starlet has featured in & PL games and provided a crucial assist against Chelsea. The youngster has the talent to replace Shaw and solve Man United’s defensive dilemma.
