Manchester United interested in completing £40 million deal for sought after defender
Reports have claimed that Manchester United are interested in signing Ibrihima Konate in the summer
Now it is no secret that Ole Gunnar Solskaer is keen to add to his squad in the coming transfer window and has been linked with the likes of Dayot Upamecano to help improve that back-line.
But after Bayern Munich confirmed that they would be signing Upamecano at the end of the season, it means that Solskjaer will have to turn his attentions elsewhere, and has reportedly set his sights on the impressive Konate
According to Bild, United are considering an approach for the 21-year-old, who has only just returned to action following an ankle problem, which kept him out from the middle of December to the start of February.
It is believed that a fee of £40 million would be enough to get a deal done, although Man Utd will have to beat off the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, who have also stepped up their interest in the lad.
Look, it will be very interesting to see just where Konate ends up in the summer as we firmly believe that he is ready for that next step, and staying where he is right now will not help his development.
