Manchester United have reportedly received a boost in their pursuit of Sevillian defender Jules Kounde.
According to Don Balon, La Liga team transfer chief Monchi is already on the hunt for a replacement for Kounde as he is heavily linked as a target at Man Utd.
The 22-year-old looks like an extremely impressive performer and could make a nice signing for the Red Devils in a problematic position if they can actually close a deal.
It’s been clear for some time now that Harry Maguire needs a better partner by his side on defense, and Kounde looks ideal to provide an upgrade on the likes of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
Don Balon suggests it looks like United can close a deal for Kounde at around € 60m, and that Monchi is already working to try and find a low-cost replacement.
Sevilla have a good record in the transfer market thanks to Monchi’s good work at the club, so they will undoubtedly unearth another great talent like Kounde before too long.
For now, however, United fans can perhaps start to get excited that things seem to be going in the right direction for them when it comes to their pursuit of the France Under-21 international.
