Manchester United monitor powerful defender

Manchester United seem to be very strong in the defensive area of the team, with Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, having a number of defenders at his disposal.

However, despite the array of central defenders available to Solskjaer, United are still being linked with a summer move to sign a top central defender.

According to the Evening Standard, Manchester United are monitoring talented Lille centre back, Gabriel Magalhaes, as Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, looks to prepare his team for a title challenge next season.

The club believes the Brazilian has what it takes to help them mount a good title challenge, despite his £20 million price tag.

There are good defenders at Old Trafford, but Olé wants to add more depth, especially with Chris Smalling likely to depart this summer.

Phil Jones is also out of the question, which leaves Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof as the only centre back options we have

22 year old Magalhaes was solid to Lille last season, and could turn out to be a top addition, if he signs and is able to adapt quickly.
