Man Utd: Kehrer Still in Market- How Ten Hag Could Reshape Backline With New Signing

Paris Saint Germaine are doing a major squad clean up this summer as new manager Christophe Gatlier wants to start life at the club on a clean slate. 7 players have already been sold, and more are expected to continue the exodus in the coming days. Thilo Kehrer is among the few wantaway players who have been heavily linked with move away from Parc de Princes.

West Ham United are the current front runners in the transfer race as Moyes is actively involved in all the negotiations between the player and his club. West Ham suffered a lot last season because most of their center backs were injured and a repeat of that is what the club is trying to avoid by signing as many center backs as possible. According to Fabrizio Romano, €25 Million could be enough for the Hammers to sign the German defender this summer and further cement their defense.

Manchester United have also been tipped with a move for the 23 year old but no official contact has been made with the player nor with PSG. Inside sources have confirmed that Ten Hag is intrigued by the player’s potential and would be pleased if the club could sign him this summer. Kehrer is also understood to be fancying a move to the Old Trafford but with how fast West Ham are pushing the paperwork, there is a high chance that Manchester United might miss out on the defender.

Erik Ten Hag is in desperate need of a new right back because Aaron Wan Bissaka is currently considered available in the transfer market. Signing Kehrer would be a big step up for the Red Devils because not only can he play in the right back position, but is also efficiently comfortable in playing as a center back. Landing him at Old Trafford would be like hitting two birds with one stone. Sounds like a good deal!

Playing with a back three is now becoming more common in the Premier League and maybe that is how Ten Hag could decide to play the squad if Kehrer joins. Having Martinez/Maguire as LCB, Varane/Lindelof as CB and Kehrer/Bailly as RCB could make perfect sense this season and hopefully seal the leak in the club’s defensive line up. De Gea would definitely feel safer with having three center backs instead of two infront of him.
