Man United are interested in signing FC Barcelona right-back, Sergino Denst.

Erik ten Hag has been delivered three signings at Manchester United thus far, though the Dutch manager probably hoped more additions will have been done at this point.

Obviously, there’s still the better part of a month left in the transfer window, though with many holes to fill and the season starting this weekend, I’d bet good money Ten Hag is growing in frustrations behind the scenes.

Reinforcements are needed practically all over the field, though a right-back absolutely wouldn’t go amiss, particularly if Aaron Wan-Bissaka does leave.

It’s Sport with the latest United transfer claim, linking the Old Trafford club with a move for FC Barcelona’s Sergino Denst.

Apparently, United are keen on signing the 21-year-old on a permanent deal this summer, with Denst previously working with Ten Hag at Ajax.

The United States international started in almost half of the La Liga games in 2021/22, while the lure of becoming a regular at the Theatre of Dreams may be somewhat appealing to the young defender.

Although the claim says that Denst is happy at the Camp Nou, a Reds switch could indeed be ‘tempting’ for the player this summer.

The first thing to note here is that negotiations with Barcelona over the De Jong deal haven’t exactly been straightforward. Do the Reds really want to get locked in another transfer saga with Joan Laporta?

On top of that, I’m not sure where this would leave Ethan Laird. The young Englishman looked pretty good against Rayo Vallecano at the weekend. I know he’s going to spend this season on loan at Watford in the Championship, but bringing in someone in his age range makes his path to the first-team pretty difficult going forward.

No transfer fees have been mentioned as of yet, but let’s see if these Denst rumours start to pick up in pace over the next few days.

Do you think a Man United move for Sergino Denst makes sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
