Revealed: Huge majority of Man United fans want Kimmich to replace Valencia

Manchester United could be in for a big summer in the transfer market – especially from a defensive point of view – and one of the positions Jose Mourinho could prioritise is at right-back.

While Antonio Valencia has been a great servant for the Red Devils, he is getting no younger and his own fans on Twitter are split as to whether he has a future at Old Trafford.

One right-back that could be a potential target for them is Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich, who impressed and scored in his side’s 2-1 defeat in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie against Real Madrid at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

His display didn’t go unnoticed by United supporters on Twitter, so we decided to ask the fans to vote on our poll to see if they would want Kimmich to replace Valencia at right-back this summer.

A huge 88% said they would want the Germany international to arrive at Old Trafford, and it will certainly be interesting to see what Mourinho intends to do this summer as it is clear that the club will probably need a new right-back if they are to compete with Manchester City for the Premier League title next term.
