Man United still interested in signing Belgium international – report
Man United are interested in a move to sign Belgium international Leander Dendoncker, say reports
Leander Dendoncker is still on Manchester United’s transfer radar this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Manchester Evening News, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Red Devils were looking into the possibility of signing the Belgian star last summer before they eventually concluded a deal for Nemanja Matic.
The same story says that Manchester United also cast an eye over the 23-year-old, who can play in both defence and midfield, in the January transfer window, but a move failed to materialise.
Now, it is being claimed that Dendoncker is still on Manchester United’s transfer wish-list this summer as Jose Mourinho ponders bolstering his options at the back ahead of next season.
The same report says that Dendoncker is valued at between £22m (€25m) and £27m (€30m), as said by Anderlecht chief general manager Herman Van Holsbeeck back in January.
Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of key signings this summer as the Red Devils look to try and bolster their squad ahead of next season.
Mourinho has already brought in young full-back Diogo Dalot and midfielder Fred this summer as he looks to assemble a team capable of winning the Premier League title next season.
