Manchester United intends to target Guido Rodriguez in January in an attempt to replace the player from Morocco.

 Manchester United is preparing a major deal for Argentine midfielder Guido Rodriguez, who is wanted by Real Betis for a new contract.

With 157 matches under his belt, the Argentina international has been a key member of Los Verdiblancos since joining from the Mexican side in 2017. Over the years, his performances have drawn a lot of attention, and United is the most recent team to express interest in the midfield player.

In order to strengthen their midfield, United already signed Sofyan Amrabat, but Morocco International isn’t performing up to par. Due to his persistent injuries, Casemiro is anticipated to be transferred out in the summer of 2019.

Rodriguez is therefore a good fit for Erik Ten Hag’s team, which needs a more reliable defensive midfielder. However, given Betis’ desperation to sign the Argentine to a new contract, negotiations are likely to be difficult.

Rodriguez has a contract that expires in 2024 and is presently valued at £24 million by Transfermarkt.

As a stand-in for Amrabat?

United has the opportunity to sign Amrabat to a long-term contract, but given his play since joining from Fiorentina, that possibility is presently uncertain.

The Moroccan hasn’t provided much of a spark in United’s midfield, despite moments of brilliance.

Kobbie Mainoo, who was named man of the match after returning from injury, is anticipated to be United’s defensive midfield talisman in the next games. To help ease the burden from Mainoo, United still need a more seasoned midfielder, and Rodriguez has been recognized as a viable choice.

The athlete is still with Betis, so it’s unclear if they’ll sell him to make up for losing him for nothing or if he’ll eventually sign a new deal to stay at Benito Villamarín Stadium.
