Man United fans split on potential Cedric arrival

According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to bring Southampton’s Cedric Soares to Old Trafford in this summer’s transfer window.

Mourinho is believed to be considering an upgrade on current first-choice right-back Antonio Valencia, who has been criticised by the club’s supporters in recent weeks.

The report claims that the United boss is interested in bringing Cedric to Old Trafford despite the Portugal international’s struggles at St Mary’s during the 2017-18 campaign.

There is no question that Cedric is a talented footballer, but it would be fair to say that a lot of Southampton fans have been disappointed with his form this term.

The United supporters have been discussing the 26-year-old on social media, and whilst a number appear to be against the move, there are plenty that would welcome his arrival this summer.

It is worth remembering that Cedric was impressive for Portugal at Euro 2016, and Mourinho obviously thinks that he can pull that type of form out of the defender.
