Jubilation in Old Trafford as Manchester United eye four new defenders

Manchester United are considering signing four players to Ralf Rangnick's defense in January. Manchester United is anticipated to have four January targets as a result of Ralf Rangnick's focused attention on defensive reinforcement.

Rangnick's key target this season is to finish in the top four. They'll square off against West Ham, Arsenal, and Tottenham in what is guaranteed to be a slugfest. And Rangnick is fully aware that his club will require more reliable alternatives in the defensive midfield in order to attain that goal. Rangnick, the Daily Express reports, would seek four players.

Jules Kounde

Chelsea are interested in signing the Frenchman, who has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United. Any attempt to sign Kounde, though, would be prohibitively expensive due to a £68 million release clause in his contract.

Tottenham and Liverpool have already scouted Lille defender Botman, and SvenRangnick may be interested in a Lille defender who has already been scouted by Tottenham and Liverpool.


De Ligt, Matthijs

He could also be an option. Prior to his move to Juventus, the Dutchman was once again on United's radar. If United rekindled their interest in him, he would cost roughly £60 million.

Josko Gvardiol

is a more cost-effective solution. Since joining RB Leipzig in the summer, the Croatian has made an impression. Gvardiol, who is only 19, can also play left back and has established himself as a regular under Jesse Marsch. He'd most likely cost in the region of £40 million. Leipzig, on the other hand, has signaled an interest in considering the sale of some of its most prominent players.
