Ian Marmion: Manchester United are clear favourites to sign Layvin Kurzawa

Bookies BetStars’ Director of Trading Ian Marmion has claimed that Manchester United are clear favourites to sign PSG’s Layvin Kurzawa.

The Frenchman has been linked with the club as reports indicate that Jose Mourinho is looking for a new left-back in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Luke Shaw and Ashley Young have been the main two players used in the position but it’s been said the Portuguese manager is still looking for an upgrade.

Marmion believes Kurzawa is looking to leave Paris and that should work in United’s favour with Mourinho set to overhaul his defence.

Whether the 25 year old will come for cheap or not is not known as of yet but it looks like he could be on his way to Old Trafford.

According to the Daily Star, Ian said: “Manchester United are leading the chase for Paris Saint-Germain’s Layvin Kurzawa, who may leave the Parc des Princes this summer in search of a regular starting spot.

“Kurzawa has had to put up with being rotated with former Tottenham full-back Yuri Berchiche this season and a list of suitors are ready to offer the 25-year-old an exit route.

“United’s odds of 11/8 rank them as the clear favourites to sign Kurzawa as Jose Mourinho seeks a long-term solution to the left-back role, having used Ashley Young there for most of this term.”

Young has impressed in the left-back spot this season for the Red Devils but he’s still considered to be a veteran option and not one for the future.

Shaw was meant to be the club’s future but has failed to impress Jose and may even be let go in the summer for better options.

Regardless of what happens Manchester United are in certain need of a revamped defence if they are to have any hopes of winning the Premier League next season.
