Manchester United is in need of a centre-back who can lead the team from the defense and Jerome Boateng is a perfect match for such a role. Old Trafford last witnessed such a leadership in defense during the Sir Alex Ferguson era when Vidic and Ferdinand played the role of leaders from the defense and were glorious for the Red Devils on various occasions. United boss Jose Mourinho is in need of such a back-line that can play a very decisive and instrumental role in winning matches for United in the coming 2018-19 season.

[spacer height=”30px”]Martial was not selected in the FIFA World Cup squad which later went on to win the World Cup at Russia 2018. The 22 year-old left the pre-season tour of the United States to attend the birth of his son and later took an extended off from training and this got Jose Mourinho frustrated. Martial later tweeted this Thursday:

Martial has been linked with the Bundesliga Champions ever since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in last January from Arsenal and he has not been the first choice for Mourinho. Martial has only made 5 starts in the previous Premier League season since the arrival of Sanchez.

According to Bling, Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has stated that Anthony Martial is not a target for Bayern Munich. Rummenigge was quoted as saying:

”We have four wingers: Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Kingsley Coman , and Serge Gnarby. And Alphonso Davies will also join in January. You must not overdo it like some clubs do, or you create problem for the coach.”

Ligue 1 Champions Paris Saint-Germain, who always seem to spend more money have been looking to sign the 6’ 4’’ defender since the opening of the summer transfer window. After making a world record signing of Neymar from Barcelona last summer and the World Cup winner and teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, they seem to spend again towards getting a world-class defender.

“Now we have to wait and see whether, at the end of the day, we find a basis on which we can agree on a transfer.

“We have to find a transfer fee that would be acceptable for both.”

United must carry out the deal before the Ligue 1 champions does before the transfer window ends on August 9 for Premier League teams.

Manchester United has always encouraged young talent and has nurtured many academy players to become fine footballers. Rashford and Lingard are prime examples of that. The recent signing of the teenage Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot from Porto is also a great addition to the team because such young players can give a lot to the team over a period of time.

Speaking from the heart of a diehard Manchester United fan, pursuing and signing players who are in late twenties or early thirties is not a good move by Manchester United. It is true that experience too counts but giving proper exposure to young players too will yield the same result. As Mourinho said in his previous interview that he is looking to sign a couple of good players and I hope they play a major role in the title chase for United the coming season and bring back the glory days at Old Trafford.
