Manchester United bid big for West Ham’s Diop

Manchester United bid big for West Ham’s Diop

United are said to have offered £45m plus an unnamed player to the Hammers.

Now, the Frenchman has been identified as a top transfer target by Manchester United, who are interested in recruiting him this summer to resolve their issues at the back.

After a disappointing 2018-19 season, during which Manchester United ended up shipping 54 goals in the Premier League - their worst ever defensive record in the competition, the Red Devils are intent on reinforcing their backline ahead of the next term with a new centre-back and a right-back as well. Manchester United, PSG and Barcelona have contacted his representatives.

A new long-term partner for Victor Lindelof is needed as doubts continue over Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly and Man Utd have been linked with big money moves for the likes of Harry Maguire, Matthijs de Ligt and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester United have made a cash plus player offer to West Ham for Issa Diop.

Pionk is also a restricted free agent but will cost less than the more-established Trouba. Trouba is just the beginning of what is expected to be a busy offseason for NY .

The Frenchman drew a lot of praise from former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho when West Ham handed the Red Devils a 3-1 defeat in September past year.

Could West Ham sign Anthony Martial from Manchester United?

The Red Devils are keen on landing Diop as they look to revamp their defence, but West Ham have taken a strictly not for sale line so far.

PST's Joe Prince-Wright rated Diop as the 10th best center back in the Premier League season.
