Man Utd's Five-Defender Shortlist Revealed?

The five centre-backs Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United have on their shortlist for the next transfer window have reportedly been revealed.

Click through the gallery above to see the five centre-backs on United's radar, according to ESPN, as well as some other players who have been linked with the Red Devils!

The Premier League giants are said to be looking to bring in a central defender ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, with many attributing United's consistency struggles to their defence.

In the coming window, the Red Devils are therefore expected to bring a new first-team centre-back to the club to strengthen the backline, perhaps to partner captain Harry Maguire.

The England international has featured alongside the likes of Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly during the course of this season, all of whom have battled to put together a decent spell of good form.

According to ESPN, Solskjaer and his coaching staff are considering a swoop for Real Madrid star Raphael Varane, whose contract in the Spanish capital is set to expire in 18 months' time. Reports appear to suggest that the Frenchman might look to move on, although there is also thought to be a contract extension offer on the table.

Aston Villa centre-back Tyrone Mings is apparently being looked at as a potential option, as is impressive Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, who scored in his side's 2-0 win over FC Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final this week.

RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano has been discussed as a possible target since the beginning of the season, with the list also featuring Braga's left-footed star David Carmo, a 21-year-old who has been likened to Liverpool centre-bacl Virgil van Dijk.
