Manchester United want to sign a top-class centre-half in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Red Devils are eager to sign a new defender in the summer, irrespective of who is in charge.

The same article states that Manchester United are hoping Napoli will be open to negotiations over the potential sale of Kalidou Koulibaly.

According to the same story, the Red Devils are keeping an eye on Leicester defender Harry Maguire, Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar and Tottenham centre-half Toby Alderweireld.

The Evening Standard adds that Manchester United vice chairman Ed Woodward has identified Real Madrid star Rapheal Varane as a dream signing.

Manchester United have made giant strides under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a 10-game unbeaten run.

The Red Devils boss has managed to get the best out of Sweden international Victor Lindelof, who has been their most consistent centre-half this season.

Eric Bailly started alongside Lindelof for their 1-0 victory over Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

The Manchester United interim manager has Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones to provide defensive cover.

The 20-time English champions have conceded 35 times in 25 games in the Premier League this season, which is 20 more than leaders Liverpool FC.
