Manchester United are interested in signing Barcelona defender Marc Bartra, as reported by Metro.
Bartra has struggled to hold down a regular first team spot at the Nou Camp, making just five La Liga appearances this term.
Bartra recently hinted that he would be open to a move to the Premier League by admitting he is a big fan of English football and that he likes the competitive nature of the defending.
Louis van Gaal’s side currently boast the best defensive record in the Premier League so far this term, having conceded just nine goals from their opening 13 games.
But is it believed the Dutchman will want to strengthen his defensive options in January, with just two senior central defenders currently available to him.
Bartra is valued at £8.4m by Transfermarkt.
