Man United chasing 21-year-old Championship defender – report
Man United are interested in £10m-rated Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey, according to a report
Manchester United are interested in a potential summer deal for Norwich City defender Ben Godfrey, according to a report in England.
The Sun is reporting that Godfrey is attracting a lot of interest from the Premier League thanks to his impressive performances for second-tier club Norwich.
The same article states that Manchester United are ready to step up their interest in the 21-year-old, especially after his call-up to the England Under-20 squad.
According to the same story, the Red Devils have been sending scouts to watch the Norwich star in action as Godfrey helps the Canaries push for promotion.
The Sun goes on to add that Manchester United are hoping that they can develop Godfrey into a proven Premier League defender, like they managed to do with Chris Smalling.
The Red Devils will be looking to add more depth, quality and youth to their squad in the summer transfer window as Manchester United continue to transition from the Jose Mourinho era.
Manchester United are in fifth place in the Premier League table and two points behind Arsenal, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
The Red Devils will take on La Liga giants FC Barcelona for a place in the Champions League semi-finals next month, where they could face Liverpool FC or FC Porto.
