Man United fans debate potential Lenglet arrival

According to L’Equipe, Manchester United are preparing a £31m move for Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet.

United boss Jose Mourinho is in the market for a new centre-back this summer, and the Red Devils have been strongly linked with Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld.

However, according to L’Equipe, Lenglet has emerged as a potential transfer target ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

The 22-year-old was in outstanding form for Sevilla last season – scoring four times in 54 appearances in all competitions for the Spanish outfit.

Spanish champions Barcelona have been strongly linked with a move for the Frenchman, but it appears that United are confident of swooping in to land the centre-back, if they so wish.

There is absolutely no question that Lenglet has talent, and he would certainly be cheaper than Alderweireld, who is believed to be valued in the region of £75m.

The United fans have been reacting to the transfer speculation surrounding Lenglet, and a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
