Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Valenciennes defender Dayot Upamecano, according to L’Equipe in France.
Arsenal were also linked with Upamecano but L’Equipe reports say United have managed to secure a deal to sign him ahead of the Gunners.
All that would be left to do is for United to agree a fee with Valenciennes over his transfer and the move can be completed.
United really are making a lot of movement in the transfer season and the window hasn’t even opened up yet.
Both Memphis Depay and 16-year-old goalkeeper Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui have been signed while the likes of 21-year-old Sam Grimshaw has confirmed he will come back to United in July for a second trial.
You can’t underestimate the importance of signing top quality youngsters because as important as the first-team is, United should never forget their roots in helping young talents blossom into world stars.
