Manchester United Transfer Rumours

Manchester United are tracking Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

 

ESPN says United have added Sevilla centre-back Kounde to their list of January transfer targets.

It is claimed United haven’t ruled out signing a central defender in the January window and Kounde, a Manchester City target for much of the summer, fits the bill.

It’s reported that the 21-year-old will only be signed provided United can get Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo off their books. Kounde admitted just yesterday that a move to City would’ve been “a good opportunity”.

Kounde was a key player in Sevilla’s Europa League triumph last season. The young defender played 40 times in all competitions in his first season with the Spanish club.

The France under-21 international is already attracting interest from clubs who could give him the next step. During the summer transfer window, he was reportedly a target for Manchester City.

It cost €25m to sign the Sevilla defender from Bordeaux but is now valued at around €70m.
