Man United closely monitoring 18-year-old Premier League defender

Man United are chasing Valentino Livramento to solve their right-back problems and bring in a fair contest for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The Norwegian manager has been impressed by the Southampton defender’s rise and remains interested in a move.

The Red Devils made some terrific additions during the summer window, which bolstered their squad and made them challengers on all fronts. The arrival of attractive new and old faces of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo has seen them move a level up, although Man United stay active for a right-back.

The Red Devils were looking for a right-back after the Norwegian coach demanded one during the window. Man United chased Kieran Trippier all summer long but were unwilling to meet Atletico Madrid’s demands over the Englishman.

Kieran will be 32 next summer, and it is highly doubtful Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would want the defender then. However, the Norwegian boss looks to have changed his approach to solving the right-back situation. He is now targeting a young, upcoming star, with Valentino Livramento of Southampton a firm target.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly been unhappy with Wan-Bissaka’s displays and contributions, and his dismissal with Young Boys seems to have infuriated the Red Devils coach. The Norwegian manager feels a lack of competition could be the problem, despite the presence of the Diogo Dalot.

Their target, Valentino, was a highly rated academy product from Chelsea. Livramento wanted to play regularly this campaign and moved to Southampton for £5m after realising chances won’t come easily at Chelsea.
