News of a Man United transfer

The transfer rumour that has consumed the majority of attention this month has been Jadon Sancho’s loan move to Borussia Dortmund, the club from which the Red Devils reportedly acquired Sancho for £73 million in 2021. This transaction encapsulates Manchester United’s recent forgettable transfer history. However, United could consider making additions, whether that be in the summer or during the transfer window this month.Although the Manchester club has been linked with moves for midfielder Joao Neves, defender Leny Yoro, and midfielder Matthijs de Ligt, they have yet to finalize a deal to acquire a single player this month. Old Trafford officials have reportedly identified a new target in preparation for a possible summer acquisition. Florian Plettenberg of Sky Sports reports that Manchester United are considering the signing of Odilon Kossounou, a “key player” for Xabi Alonso and Bayer Leverkusen. A post by Plettenberg on X:Raphael Varane’s impending departure, which has been the subject of conversation for some time, so United’s pursuit of a center-back is not overly surprising, although Varane’s departure has not yet occurred. According to prior reports, United are reportedly prepared to accept a transfer offer for the former Real Madrid player.”Fast” Kossounou could solve Manchester United’s defensive woes.

If Manchester United are to regain their winning mentality in the near future, it would likely be extremely beneficial to acquire a player who has been a part of Bayer Leverkusen’s unblemished season across all competitions. Additionally, Kossounou’s statistics indicate that he might be a better option than Varane.Gerardo Seoane, a former manager of Leverkusen, had previously lauded Kossounou highly. When Kossounou filled in at right-back for the club, he told the Bundesliga website via BuliNews, “Odilon naturally interprets the right-back position differently than Jeremie [Frimpong] due to his own qualities.”In reality, the transition from cornerback to roving fullback is quite substantial; however, he adapted admirably and did so in a timely manner. We are able to utilize three, four, or five-man backfields because of him. “Not only is he difficult to pass, but he is also quick and extremely valuable on set pieces.”


A candidate that Manchester United may wish to acquire during the upcoming summer transfer window is the Ivory Coast international.
