Premier League

Manchester United emerges as front runners to sign the new Rio Ferdinand

The red devils have been amazing in recent months following their outstanding winning streak which has seen them positioned first on the league table. Despite having one of the sharpest attacks in the premier league, the club is not very content with the backline. The club has reportedly identified a number of marquee players to help consolidate the team's defence.

Latest report from Manchester United camp says, the club has identified 21 year old French center back, Dayot Upamecano as the ideal defender to help fine-tune the Red devils backline. The bulky defender has been scintillating with RB Leipzig, with a number of heavyweight clubs registering concrete interest in him. His ability to start play from the back, accurate passing with both feet, breathtaking ariel duels makes him stand out as one of the best defenders in the world.

Manchester United believes Dayot Upamecano can provide a longterm stability at the backline considering his age and abilities. His move to Old Trafford could see Victor Lindelof or Axel Tuanzebe leave the club. However, Manchester United will face keen competition from Real Madrid and Chelsea who have also been monitoring the defender all this while.
