Solskjaer encouraged to raid Leicester City again with big Manchester United offer for impressive defender

Manchester United should be considering a raid on Leicester for Wesley Fofana, says Paul Scholes

While encouraged by recent performances at the back from the Red Devils, Scholes feels there is still room for improvement and believes another big-money offer to Leicester for Fofana could deliver more value in the transfer market.

“As a back-four, I worry about how good they really are,” Scholes told ESPN ahead of United’s crunch clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

“At full-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is just about defending, which is fine for a game at Liverpool, but I’m not sure what Luke Shaw brings to the team.

“In the middle, Ole still has to find Harry Maguire’s best partner. Eric Bailly has pace, but he is rash and picks up too many injuries. Victor Lindelof plays the position better and seems to be Ole’s preferred option, but again, he is not totally convincing.

“If I was Ole and could sign a defender this month, I’d go for Wesley Fofana at Leicester. He’s only 20, but he has been outstanding and he has the potential to be anything he wants to be.

“United have done OK at the back this season, but they have been exposed when playing against the big teams, and that’s another problem they need to solve.”

Look, Leicester are flying high in the Premier League and will only sell if a massive offer that they cannot refuse does come in, but at the end of the day, United will not want to pay more than £50 million for Fofana.

And the fact that Leicester will want more than that, we cannot see a transfer deal happening guys.
