Man United intends to sign a player for £31 million. – Report

Castello Lukeba is a top-tier defender that Manchester United is eager to sign in order to bolster their defense during the winter transfer window.

Bild claims that Man Utd want to buy the 20-year-old center back, who has become an immediate star in Germany.

The well-known media source reported that scouts from the Red Devils have repeatedly watched the player’s performances and have followed him religiously.

Lukeba left Ligue 1 team Olympique Lyon in the summer transfer window for RB Leipzig for a cost of £31 million (35 million euros).

The youthful player has started eight Bundesliga games so far this season, helping the side to five clean sheets.

He was called up to the French national team due to his outstanding club play, and he made his debut for the Bleus last month in a 4-1 triumph over Scotland.

The problem for Manchester United, according to Bild, is that Leipzig does not plan to let go of the gifted defender. Gvardiol, a Croatian international, was signed to replace Josko Gvardiol, who moved to Manchester City during the summer transfer window.

Erik ten Hag has been greatly missing Lisandro Martinez at Old Trafford due to a long-term injury. However, in the middle defense, players like Varane, Lindelof, and Maguire have not been reliable.

Who, in your opinion, ought to Man Utd sign in January to bolster the defense?
