Manchester United spent a decent sum to sign Bailly from Villareal last year. This year, they splashed the cash to lure Lindelof from Benfica.
The issue is that the Ivorian center half is out with a long term injury and the Swedish defender has not been able to impress so far since moving to Old Trafford.
In such a scenario, Mourinho wants to reinforce his back line and a new name is in the limelight in the form of Daniele Rugani.
According to reports (Il Posticipo), the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal are ready to release a fee worth 40 million euros to hire the services of the Italian international.
The Italian source have mentioned that the 23-year-old star is a talented defender but Allegri opts to start him only in the games that are considered easy. For tough fixtures, he has mainly warmed the bench.
Therefore, the player is looking at a move away from the Old Lady and the Il Posticipo has mentioned that he is interested in moving to the Premier League.
Apart from Lindelof and Bailly, United have got stars like Rojo, Blind, Smalling and Jones, who can effectively play in the central defense as well. In your opinion, do they need another CB?
