Manchester United interested in Jerry St Juste

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are monitoring Dutch youngster Jerry St Juste, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that the exciting 18-year-old Heerenveen defender caught the eye of Red Devils scouts as they were compiling reports on Champions League rivals PSV.

The centre-back impressed United officials in Heerenveen's 1-1 draw with PSV in August, but it's far from certain as to whether the Premier League giants will step up their interest in him anytime soon.

As well as playing at centre-back, St Juste can also play in defensive midfield, so would only add to Louis van Gaal's options. 

The United boss, of course, has already brought two Dutch players to Manchester, with the duo of Memphis Depay and Daley Blind currently plying their trade for the club.

The potential signing of St Juste would no doubt be one for the future, so it looks set to be an interesting season ahead for the soon to be 19-year-old.

United defensive options

Van Gaal has certainly made United a hard team to beat. Despite conceding two goals against Southampton yesterday, the Red Devils looked solid enough as they went on to secure the victory. 

There's room for improvement, though, and with Luke Shaw on the sidelines for the foreseeable future, the United chief is right to be keeping his options open. 

However, with the club having failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four outings in all competitions, the Red Devils will be hoping to keep Ipswich Town at bay in the Capital One Cup at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.
