Man United enter the battle to sign 22-year-old Serie A defender

The Red Devils are amongst the teams that have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Theo Hernandez, with Milan considering selling the defender this summer. U21 France international has enjoyed a fantastic debut campaign with the Rossoneri, the left-back has chipped in with six goals and two assists from left-back this campaign.

European giants Man United, Man City, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus are all in the market for a new left-back in the next transfer window. Rossoneri are considering the sale of Theo this summer, with the Serie A club, would use the funds from a potential deal to sign other targets.

Hernandez impressed in Atletico’s youth ranks before controversially joining rivals Real Madrid, the defender is the younger brother of Lucas Hernandez the left-back who made a marquee move to Bayern last summer.

Neither the Sun or Marca’s reports quote a price-tag for the 22-year-old defender, but they add that the left-back joined the Italian giants for £18m last summer so we’d think any fee would have to be considerably higher than this

While left-back is certainly a position that the Red Devils could bolster in, Man United should carefully consider signing a footballer in this position.

Luke Shaw has shown some promise over the last two seasons after a tough start to life in Manchester and academy graduate Brandon Williams has emerged as a quality talent for Man United. Potentially signing Theo is bound to have a massive impact on one of Shaw or Williams’ Red Devils careers.
