Manchester United are in search of a new defensive midfielder and lately, more than a few quality names have been in the spotlight.
The likes of Toni Kroos, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danilo Pereira are a few names linked with the Red Devils at the moment.
Another name who has interested the Old Trafford club is Ivorian international and Atlanta star Franck Kessie (MEN).
The 20-year-old African international is a versatile player, who can effectively play in the central/defensive midfield. If the latest reports are anything to go by then Mourinho can agree his signing by splashing “only cash”.
According to latest reports in Italy (CalcioMercato via La Gazzetta Dello Sport), the Serie A side have made it clear that they will not accept any swap deal and demand only cash for their prized asset.
As per the provided CalcioMercato link, the likes of Chelsea and Roma are also looking to secure his signature this summer.
However, the Red Devils may be considered favorites because recently, the player himself claimed that United is his dream club.
“I like the Premier League and in particular Manchester United, the club I dream of playing for.”
This season, in 22 appearances, the former Cesena midfielder has directly contributed in 9 goals (7 goals and 2 assists).
In your opinion, who will be the perfect defensive midfielder for Man United?
