Man United still in the race to sign Antonio Rudiger: report

Man United haven’t given up hope on moving to sign Antonio Rudiger.

Manchester United Football Club have themselves a Harry Maguire issue.

The Red Devils captain continues to make mistake after mistake. As things stand, I find it hard to see how he’ll remain captain going into the 2022/23 season. Perhaps he may not even be at the club…

Defensively, we’ve been an absolute mess over the last twelve months. We’ve conceded way too many soft goals week-in-week-out, always putting ourselves at a disadvantage in important games.

Moving for a proven Premier League centre-half could help us in our quest of fixing those issues. that’s where Antonio Rudiger comes in…

The story comes from Patrick Berger, who states that the Chelsea man is yet to make a decision on his future. The German looks all set to leave Stamford Bridge on a free transfer this summer.

Apparently, United, along with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, are ‘still in the race’ to sign the 29-year-old defender on a free.

First and foremost, paying no transfer fee for a man with bags of Premier League experience and know how would be huge. Rudiger has proven his ability in this country over the last few years and I have to believe he’d be an immediate upgrade on what we have.

The German is right at his peak age in terms of play, meaning he’d slot right into the side from day one. I also believe he’d be the perfect complement for a player like Raphael Varane.

One concern of mine would be the wages. United have overpaid for players for way too long and that’s something the club simply have to get away from. However, Rudiger would demand a huge amount of money to move to United this summer.

On top of that, Rudiger is a wind up merchant. That can often work in your favour but sometimes to your detriment. With these sort of individuals, you have to tread extremely carefully.

There’s also no guarantee he’d choose United given the other sides linked. We have to be realistic, both Real Madrid and PSG are in way better shape than us right now. I guess the fact that we’re based in the same country (assuming he wants to stay in the UK) could be our number one selling point.
