Manchester United is thinking of strengthening the defensive department for this season.

The Red Devils have had fluctuating form this start of the season and coach Erik Ten Hag wants to strengthen the defence.

The Red Devils’ main interest is Bayern centre-back Matthijs de Ligt.

Ten Hag worked with De Ligt when the pair were part of Ajax and wants to reunite at ‘Old Trafford’.

The Dutch central defender is not playing much at Bayern this season with coach Thomas Tuchel preferring the duo Kim-Upamecano in front of him.

Thus, his departure from the Allianz Arena seems more likely, but United must spend around 70 million euros, as much as De Ligt is valued by Bayern.

We remind you that the Catalan giant Barcelona is also in the running for the Dutch centre-back.
