Man United on alert as target admits Monaco exit is close

Manchester United will be on high alert after defensive target Layvin Kurzawa revealed he could leave Monaco in the near future, talkSPORT reports.

The 22-year-old was a top target for Louis van Gaal ahead of the January window, with the club were believed to have been preparing a bid around £12million to lure him to Old Trafford.

Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester City were also alerted by the situation of the French left-back, and were thought said to be considering a move for the player ahead of the new year.

Upon hearing about all the interested parties, Kurzawa admitted that if he is to further develop as a player, he might one day have to think about a club exit.

He said: “I read [that PSG are interested].

“PSG are a big European club, but I have got too much respect for Monaco to talk about a rival club.

“Of course I think about my career choices and I have no doubt that one day I will leave Monaco. But I don’t know when.”

Ligue 1 rivals Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping a close eye on the defender, according to talkSPORT, but it is unlikely that he will make a move to a direct rival.
