Manchester United clearly need a new right-back for this coming season, as Louis van Gaal clearly doesn’t fancy Rafael da Silva and Antonio Valencia’s deficiencies in that position certainly showed at times throughout the last campaign.
According to the usually reliable Mark Ogden of The Telegraph, Manchester United have set their sights on Seamus Coleman of Everton after Dani Alves decided to renew his contract at FC Barcelona.
Coleman, 26, has really emerged as one of the better right-backs in the Premier League over the last couple of years, in terms of both defending and attacking.
Although it’d certainly cost a lot to tempt Everton into selling their star man, and you’d imagine it’d be somewhere around the £20million mark – which is huge profit for the Toffees who paid a mere £60,000 to bring him to Goodison.
Personally I feel that United have missed a trick not going in for Nathaniel Clyne instead, as he would’ve been considerably cheaper and is the better of the pair.
Would Coleman be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
