Man United are ‘pushing’ to sign David Raum

Man United are trying to bring David Raum to Old Trafford this summer.

Erik ten Hag’s first signing at Manchester United is yet to be made, though I’m still expecting a flurry of additions to take place in the not too distant future.

Simply put, the Old Trafford club need to invest in pretty much every area of the field, so why not build from the back and tighten up the defence?

The latest defender linked with a potential Old Trafford switch is David Raum, with the claim coming from Sky Sports Germany. Thanks to Sport Witness for the translation.

Apparently, United are ‘pushing’ to sign the 24-year-old full-back this summer, with the German enjoying an excellent season for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga.

Raum has played his way into the view of numerous top teams with his performances in 2021/22, with the ‘strongest competition’ coming from the Premier League. However, Borussia Dortmund remain interested in the German international.

According to the report, United and Hoffenheim are still ‘far away’ from an agreement, though the player can ‘imagine a transfer’ to the Old Trafford club this summer.

In terms of fee, Sport Witness reckon around £30m should be able to get the job done, which feels very reasonable in this day and age.

There’s no doubt that United could do with an upgrade in the left-back slot, largely due to the fact that neither Luke Shaw nor Alex Telles are all that reliable. Both can be sublime on their day, though sadly, we’ve also seen too many games where they’ve just been shockingly bad.

Raum could bring some consistency to the left-back position, giving Ten Hag one less headache to worry about during a debut season where he’ll be keen to make his mark on the Premier League.

Do you think a Man United move to sign David Raum makes sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
