Manchester United target Kyle Walker as alternative to Southampton full back

Published Add your comment

Manchester United could switch focus from Southampton's Nathaniel Clyne to Tottenham's Kyle Walker as they hunt a new right back.

Louis van Gaal is searching for a new right back to replace the unwanted Rafael, and after the Old Trafford giants signed Luke Shaw from Southampton last summer they seemed set to return to the South Coast for Clyne.


However, the Daily Mirror reports Walker has also appeared on the Red Devils radar.

Walker has four years left on his £50,000 a week contract and has showed no indication that he is unsettled, but the chance to increase his wages and play for the 13-time Premier League Champions may prove too tempting.


United have been on the hunt for a new right back and have been linked with Barcelona's out of contract Dani Alves, fellow Brazilian Danilo at Porto, and Clyne. However, the desire to buy someone young, eligible as a home-grown player and familiar with the Premier League has meant Walker has joined the shortlist.

Walker missed the beginning of the season after stomach surgery, but returned to the Spurs starting line up towards the end of 2014 and has quickly found his form. Possessing explosive pace and tremendous stamina, Walker can attack and defend the entire right flank and will be hoping to earn a recall to the England squad, and add to his 10 caps for his country.
