Manchester United’s midfield has looked rather fragile at times this season, with Louis van Gaal choosing to regularly rotate in that area of the field. However the middle of the park could be about to get a much-needed boost, with N’Golo Kante of Leicester reportedly a target.
Goal UK say that Manchester United, who face Leicester this weekend, will use the opportunity to speak to The Foxes about signing the Frenchman.
The English media outlet go on to say that the Old Trafford club believe Kante could be available for around £20million due to a potential buy-out clause in his contract.
Kante has been one of the Premier League’s standout players this campaign, putting in brilliant performances week-after-week, despite him only arriving in England for a £5.6million transfer fee in the summer just gone.
He’d certainly bring some grit and the ability to break out from the middle of the park to a side that has been lacking in mobility over the last few seasons.
