Manchester United

Manchester United is one of the teams pursuing Arouna Sangante, the youngest captain of Ligue 1.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has not been able to select his best starting lineup due to the team’s excessive injury load this season.

The Dutch manager has had to practically constantly shuffle his deck, which has left the defense lacking calmness. As a result, the defense has suffered the most.

World Cup champions Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez, his best center-back combination, have both sustained injuries of differing severity, keeping the Argentine out of the picture for the entire season.

United requires a fresh defense.

Luke Shaw, who performed brilliantly in Martinez’s absence the previous season, is still not back in action, while Johnny Evans, who rejoined the team this summer, is also out of commission in January.

As soon as possible, the back needs to be strengthened because Varane, Harry Maguire, and Victor Lindelof’s futures are all up in the air.

A new name has been added to the mix following reports linking United with Goncalo Inacio of Sporting Lisbon and Jean-Clair Todibo of Nice.

Football Insider reports that a number of teams in Europe are interested in Le Havre phenomenon Arouna Sangante, with United among them.

The European powerhouses AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea, and arch rivals Manchester City are all keeping an eye on the events.

The newly-promoted squad has been led by the 21-year-old, who is the youngest captain in Ligue 1, to seventh place in the standings with five clean sheets in the ten games the defender has played in.

Sangante has excelled in the French top flight since being chosen to the second tier’s squad of the season the previous season.

According to Transfermarkt, his current contract is worth €8 million and is valid until 2026. According to the source, Vincent Volpe, the club owner, wants to sell the highly-regarded young player in January when his value is at its peak.

Ligue 1 sensation Arouna Sangante is being eyed by United.

“Sources tell Football Insider that Man United, Man City, and Chelsea are interested in signing Le Havre sensation Arouna Sangante.”

“Le Havre owner Vincent Volpe has given FIFA agent Willie McKay an exclusive mandate to sell the player in the January transfer window. Le Havre is aware of the growing interest in Sangante.”

Sir Alex Ferguson made United famous for striking such low-cost agreements for future stars, and perhaps, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe joining the fold as a minority stakeholder, the likelihood of such deals getting done will rise.

United had already done business with the French club, having bought a teenage Paul Pogba for their academy from the then-Ligue 2 squad.
