Man United held negotiations with 23-year-old Bundesliga star

Man United are to face competition from Juventus for the signing of Eintracht Frankfurt centre-back Evan N’Dicka. The 23-year-old centre-back enjoyed a fantastic campaign last year for the Bundesliga giants, playing a crucial role in their Europa League run which saw them lift the trophy after defeating Rangers in the final.

His displays have attracted the interest of teams across Europe, and the Red Devils will face competition from the Bianconeri to secure his signature. Man United were in the market for a centre-back during the summer transfer window but eventually signed Lisandro Martinez.

It’s unclear whether Evan will still be a target now that Martinez has been brought in, but it appears if they do, they will face competition from the Old Lady. The Red Devils may be considering finding a long-term replacement for Maguire, who has struggled with form in recent months.

N’Dicka could be lined up to play as a backup to both Martinez and Varane, who have formed a tight partnership in the last few weeks after a shaky start for the Red Devils. The French defender was instrumental in helping the German club end their drought for a European honour as they beat Rangers on penalties in the Europa League final.

The Red Devils have had their defensive issues last campaign as they’ve broken the record for their leakiest Premier League campaign. Man United have already reignited their interest in Villarreal defender Pau Torres as they look to add another centre-back in the upcoming transfer window.
