Report: Agent of United’s target in the UK to discuss transfer deal

It appears that earlier reports linking Manchester United with a move for Lille centre back, Gabriel Magalhaes may be true after all, as Sky Sports say the player’s agent is currently in the UK to discuss a transfer deal with two different clubs.

If you recall, earlier on Friday, we reported Lille have officially received a £27 million from Man United for the talented player, and although Everton are also said to be interested in him, United hold a better appeal, and stand a better chance of getting his signature.

Recent reports also say Lille have signed Ajax Amsterdam’s Sven Botman as his replacement, and this means the transfer is almost certainly going to happen.

If this report is valid, it could be a major bargain for United, after seeing how good Gabriel was for Lille last season.
