Jose Mourinho keen to sign 26-year-old left-back from Serie A giants

As per a report from the Guardian, The Red Devils are being linked with a £53m transfer for Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam. That transfer fee would change the Algerian player into one of the most valuable defenders in the world.

Ghoulam is a 26-year-old left-back who performs for Napoli in the Serie A. The Algerian is in his fifth term with the Italian giants and has proved himself as one the club’s most talented footballers on the same level as other aces such as Marek Hamsik and Dries Mertens. Ghoulam is also starting his prime years, so he would be a good purchase.

Man United need a left-back, and Ghoulam force is possible at a premium price since he is currently taking a knee damage. But the fact that he won’t be a free agent before 2022 will surely boost his price. United would be smart to make a transfer for him.

It continues to be discussed whether Napoli want to separate ways with Ghoulam, but United must do everything they can to take him. He is the sort of footballers that can definitely change the game on both edges of the pitch. And that’s a point United have lacked in last years.
