Barcelona right-back Sergino Dest is the subject of interest from Man United over a potential move in the summer transfer window. Man United are keen on strengthening the right-back unit ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, with Wan-Bissaka surplus to requirements.
USA international joined the Blaugrana from Ajax in October 2020, completing a dream move to the Catalan giants despite still being in his teens. But Dest has struggled to stamp his authority in the last two campaigns, with Xavi, in particular, unconvinced by his abilities.
Sergino, who has three goals and four assists in 72 games for the Blaugrana, had also fallen behind Dani Alves in the second half of the 2021/22 campaign. And with the summer transfer window kicking into top gear, the 21-year-old defender faces an uncertain future at Barcelona, with the Catalan giants open to selling the right-back.
The Red Devils could offer him an escape route out of the Blaugrana. Man United will look to sign a defender in the summer transfer window, as neither Aaron Wan-Bissaka nor Diogo Dalot is completely convincing as a first-choice option.
While Wan-Bissaka is a dud in the final third, Dalot is susceptible in the defensive phases, thus compelling the Red Devils to invest in another right-back. The American defender might be a player in a similar vein as Diogo Dalot, but the ex-Ajax right-back has a high ceiling and might do well if he reunites with Erik ten Hag at Man United.
