Man United want to sign 22-year-old defender


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to strengthen his squad this summer after United finished sixth in the Premier League last season and he needs to overhaul his defence as they conceded a whopping 54 goals in their 38 games.

It is claimed though that West Ham would want a Manchester United player as part of a deal, however the Red Devils are not prepared to let the Hammers have the player they have identified. Manchester United, PSG and Barcelona have contacted his representatives.

Manchester United have made a cash plus player offer to West Ham for Issa Diop.

Manchester United may be planning their next big swoop during the summer transfer window after securing the services of Daniel James from Swansea.

Kalidou Koulibaly is another player who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford but his asking price is believed to be closer to £100m.

The £22 million signing from Toulouse (BBC Sport) was a mainstay in the side and caught the eye with some commanding displays at the back.

The Frenchman drew a lot of praise from former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho when West Ham handed the Red Devils a 3-1 defeat in September a year ago.

PST's Joe Prince-Wright rated Diop as the 10th best center back in the Premier League season.

Diop is contracted with West Ham till the summer of 2023 and they are unlikely to want to lose the Frenchman just a year after signing him.
