Man United want to sign 26-year-old Dortmund star – report
Manchester United are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund defender Marc Batra, say reports
Manchester United have enquired about the availability of Borussia Dortmund defender Marc Batra, according to reports.
The Sun is quoting Catalan journalist Gerard Romero as having claimed that the Premier League outfit have contacted Dortmund about the possibility of signing Batra this summer.
The same report claims that Jose Mourinho is clearly keen to further bolster his defensive options at Old Trafford this summer after having already landed Victor Lindelof from Benfica last month.
Romero took to Twitter to claim that the Red Devils have contacted Borussia Dortmund to ask about the situation regarding Barta, with a view to a possible summer move for the 26-year-old.
The defender suffered a broken wrist when three bombs exploded near the Dortmund bus before a Champions League clash with Monaco earlier this year.
However, he has made a full recovery and is now apparently attracting interest from the Premier League.
Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer but have so far only concluded a deal to land Lindelof from Benfica.
