Manchester United were looking to reinforce their central defense in the summer transfer window but failed in the pursuit of big stars.
Sergio Ramos opted to stay with the Los Blancos and is now the captain of the Real Madrid side. On the other hand, Nicolas Otamendi of Argentina joined Man United’s rivals Manchester City much to the despair of the Old Trafford faithful.
If reports are anything to go by then the Red Devils are ready to sign German international and current Valencia center back Shkrodran Mustafi to finally solve the central defense dilemma.
According to Spanish source Fichajes, Manchester United are willing to make a big move to secure the services of Mustafi who is valued at around $33.7 million.
The 23-year-old center back was part of the German squad that won the World Cup last year and made three appearances in the competition.
The Kaiser has taken no time to replace Nicolas Otamendi at Valencia and has got the quality to strengthen Man United’s defense.
