Manchester United are reportedly closely monitoring Southampton youngster Valentino Livramento as per the report in TRANSFERmarketWEB.
The 18-year-old joined the Saints from Chelsea this summer for around £5 million. The youngster has started all five Premier League games for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side and showcased his talent with excellent performances.
According to the report, following an impressive start to top-flight football, Manchester United have shown interest in Livramento to solve their right-back problems. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly been unimpressed by Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s display so far this season and the red card against the Young Boys have made the Norwegian even more infuriated.
The Red Devils manager is looking for competition in places and wants to bring in a new right-back. Although the Norwegian manager has Diogo Dalot in the squad, it is highly unlikely that the Portuguese will be considered as a challenger for the number one spot.
Manchester United want to sign Livramento from Southampton:
Signing Livramento will be a very good addition for Manchester United. However, given the fact that the player just joined Southampton this summer. It will be hard for the Red Devils to lure the youngster to Old Trafford stadium.
Meanwhile, Wan-Bissaka has had his problems since arriving at the Red Devils. Although the defender has showcased his talent in the defensive third of the pitch. He lacks efficiency going forward and lacks quality with the ball. The Englishman can also be a bit wayward in passing at times.
So, signing a proper backup to the 23-year-old will be a very good acquisition for Manchester United. However, with Dalot being already in the squad. The Portuguese should be given chances to showcase his talent before making the final decision. So, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Wan-Bissaka and Dalot at Old Trafford in upcoming times.
