Manchester United are apparently keeping close tabs on Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, who has also been linked with Arsenal, Everton, Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli.
Manchester United have actually apparently gotten in the running to sign Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes this summer.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made the finalizing of a new main defender among his leading concerns for the existing transfer window as he searches for a regular and long-term partner for Harry Maguire
Twenty-two-year-old Gabriel has been linked with a move to the Premier League for a variety of months now, with Everton especially keen on his services and Arsenal having also been linked.
Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli are also now believed to be monitoring his situation, and The Mirror reports that United have actually ended up being the 5th team in the race for his signature.
The Brazilian might be offered for around ₤20 m, making him a substantially less expensive option than a few of the other players presumably on United’s defensive radar.
Lille’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League as a result of the Ligue 1 season being cut short is expected to increase the probability of Gabriel looking for pastures new, and United hope to utilize the funds produced from any sale of Chris Smalling on a direct replacement.
Gabriel made 34 appearances for Lille throughout all competitions in 2019-20
