Manchester United show interest in Nathaniel Clyne

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United are showing an interest in Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne, according to reports.

Clyne has seriously impressed at St.Mary's this season and earned a call up for England last year. The 24-year-old has featured in all but two of the Saints' Premier League games this season.


Now it appears as though his form has captured the attention of Manchester United, who are in the market for a new right-back. Rafael has failed to impress boss Louis van Gaal this term and the England youngster could be a potential alternative according to the Daily Mirror.

The Red Devils have deployed a wing-back system this season and used Antonio Valencia at right-back, but Van Gaal is in the market for a long-term solution and Clyne could be his man. 


An added bonus for Manchester United is the fact that Clyne only has 18 months on his contract with Southampton which means that he could move on the cheap in the summer.

Liverpool are also in the hunt for the former Crystal Palace defender but it seems as though it is Manchester United who are leading the race. Brendan Rodgers could lose Glen Johnson in the summer and Clyne is a potential alternative.

Southampton will do all they can to keep him from Liverpool and Manchester United, and will try and tie him down to a long-term deal.
