Manchester United interested in deal for Dani Carvajal

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United are interested in launching a bid to sign Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal, according to reports in Spain.

The 23 year-old has been a consistent fixture in the Los Blancos side since returning to the club he began with, signing from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen in 2013.

Competition for places

However, with Real confirming earlier in the year that they are signing FC Porto's Brazilian right-back Danilo in the next transfer window, it has called into question Carvajal's future at the club.

Now, with a potential departure on the cards, it seems as though United are set to be one of the first clubs to act, and might reinforce their interest with a bid designed to test Real's resolve.

Real stance

Whether it will meet Real's reported valuation of the player of around £22 million is currently unknown, but more will become clear in the coming weeks. As a player Carvajal could definitely add some much-needed depth to United's defence, with Rafael struggling with injuries and Antonio Valencia having been forced to play out of position this term.

His consistency and ability both defensively and in attack would be an asset to Louis van Gaal, in his quest to re-establish the Red Devils as a major force in world football.

Champions League bonus

With United now confirmed a top-four place and a place in the Champions League for next season, it is expected that Van Gaal will set in motion a spending spree to compete for trophies next season, both domestically and in Europe.

PSV Eindhoven winger Memphis Depay is already confirmed to be joining in the summer and many more may follow suit.

United fans, would Carvajal be a timely addition to the Old Trafford setup? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
