Manchester United linked with £25million Torino defender and more transfer news.



Manchester United linked with £25million Torino defender and more transfer news.Torino defender linked to United for £25 million; additional transfer rumorsIt has been reported that Manchester United was interested in acquiring Torino defender Alessandro Buongiorno. It is anticipated that Erik ten Hag will seek a new center-back this season, as this is one of the four areas of the squad that he intends to enhance.

As things stand, Raphael Varane is expected to depart the club this summer, as his contract will expire in June. United has indicated they will not extend his current contract, and the 2018 World Cup champion is uncertain as to whether he will accept a reduced-terms extension if one is offered to him. He believes he is being forced out of Old Trafford.


The one-year contract extension of Victor Lindelof has been activated, whereas Harry Maguire’s agreement remains in effect for an additional 18 months. Jonny Evans signed a 12-month contract last year, and his performances raise the possibility that he will be requested to extend it.United are in need of a young natural center-back given that Lindelof, Maguire, Evans, and Varane will all be over the age of 30 prior to the start of the following season. Willy Kambwala, 26, and Lisandro Martinez, who turns 26 today, are the only individuals who do not qualify.


Recent seasons have seen 24-year-old Buongiorno shine in Serie A, and FourFourTwo reports that Erik ten Hag may consider making a move for him this summer. Torino might be amenable to a €30 million (£25 million) offer for the Italy international with two appearances.


Ten Hag prefers to have left-footed central defenders, and Buongiorno satisfies that criterion in addition to his capability as a left-back. This season, he has found the net three times.


In the interim, Dan Gore is reportedly considering a loan to League One club Port Vale. Multiple EFL clubs have expressed interest in the midfielder since he made his senior United debut in September.According to reports, Port Vale are offering Gore regular playing time, as the midfielder has been sidelined since Boxing Day. According to The Telegraph, an agreement may be reached in the closing weeks of the January transfer window.
