Man Utd to compete with Arsenal for signature of defender

Manchester United are set to challenge Arsenal for the signature of the Villareal defender, Paulista. The London Evening Standard broke the news last night, and both clubs, whom are seeking a spot in Europe next season, look set to battle it out for the signature of the 24-year old.

Paulista has been in fine form for his club side this season, helping them to the third best defensive record in La Liga with only Barcelona and Real Madrid conceding fewer.

Manchester United are desperate for centre-backs and Paulista would certainly be a good addition to the side. However it looks as if they player will have the decision in his own hands, as both United and Arsenal will have to meet his £15million release clause to prise him away from Villareal.

Would Paulista be a good addition? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
