Man United are desperate to sign 25-year-old La Liga star

Man United are reportedly considering a transfer swoop for Real Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola. The Red Devils have seemingly identified the right-back position as a problem area in their squad campaign after unconvincing form from Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

This being one area Red Devils want to make a signing in the near future, naming Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier as one possible option. Now, another name coming up as a target for Red Devils is Real Madrid’s Spain international, who has struggled for game time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Alvaro impressed at former club Real Sociedad, which earned him his big move to Real Madrid, but he’s not really been able to make the step up for Los Blancos. Odriozola also had a loan spell at Bayern Munich last campaign, so it seems likely he could be made available by the Los Blancos again soon.

Red Devils could do well to bring in a more attack-minded right-back than Wan-Bissaka, who just doesn’t contribute enough going forward in comparison to the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold or other full-backs shining for top teams these days.

Harry Maguire has not been convincing at the Theatre of Dreams, and he might benefit from a better centre-back partner than flops like Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
