Man United make recent enquiries about Ben White: report

Man United are seemingly keen on Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back, Ben White.

This isn’t the first time the Red Devils have been linked with a move to sign Ben White. Back in December, we covered reported interest in the Englishman.

Since then, United’s backline has continued to be hit-and-miss. One game the defence can look like world-beaters, in other, they look like the Chuckle Brothers. It’s that inconsistency which has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking elsewhere.

The latest small update in regards to a potential United move for White comes from the ever-reliable Jonathan Shrager. He took to Twitter to bring us the news.

Apparently, United have made ‘recent enquiries’ about the emerging 23-year-old, while the Reds continue to ‘monitor’ the Brighton centre-half. White has looked superb for The Seagulls this term, following a hugely successful loan spell at Leeds United last season.

Although this isn’t the Galactico, big-name signing that many fans would expect, you can see exactly why United like White. Quick, strong and a real presence back there.

However, White wouldn’t come cheap. In the summer, Brighton stood firm and rejected a bid of as much as £50million for White from Leeds. A year later, you’d only expect that figure to increase and I just don’t see United spending that much in the current climate.

At this point, United are being linked with a new centre-back every single day almost. I don’t doubt that before we actually get to the summer transfer window, we’ll cover several more stories on White. I guess a lot depends on how strongly he finishes the season.

Would White be a good signing for Man United? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
