Man United keeping tabs with 21-year-old Argentine centre-back


It doesn’t really look like Man United are going to make any major signings in this winter window, but they could still add some footballers with potential for future seasons.

The back-line has certainly improved but it can still look woefully exposed at times so it’s still a work in progress, but there’s a glaring lack of a left-footed option to add some balance to the defence.

Marcos Rojo could fill in if needed but he’s nowhere near the team and looks to be on his way out, so Lens centre-back Facundo Medina has emerged as a long-term solution that could develop into a starting option.

Medina’s a full Argentine international and he’s got some pace and he’s good on the ball, but he is on the shorter side for a PL centre-back so there will be fears about him being dominated in the air.

A report has indicated that the Red Devils are considering making a €12m offer to bring him in, but they wouldn’t be looking for him to complete the move until the summer.

That would make sense as it’s his first season in Europe so he would continue to develop and play in France, while it will be worth trying to see him in action for Lens to see how he might adapt.
