According to The Athletic, Manchester United have several LaLiga centre-backs on their shortlist this summer.

The Premier League side are looking at Real Madrid’s Raphaël Varane. His cost would be reduced owing to his Real Madrid contract expiring next summer, although sources close to United believe that the French defender could still sign a new contract with the LaLiga giants.

Villarreal and Spain international Pau Torres is on United’s radar. Torres will come up against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men in the Europa League final. The report also suggests that Sevilla’s young centre-back Jules Koundé is also being considered. Koundé has been excellent for the Andalusian outfit this season and was named in Didier Deschamps’ 26-man France squad for Euro 2020.
