Man United eyeing Firpo

According to Spanish outlet AS, Manchester United are eyeing a move for Real Betis’ Junior Firpo.

United are said to be willing to pay somewhere in the region of €25-30m to sign the 22-year-old.

Firpo has been in Betis’ youth system since 2014, making 44 appearances for their B team.

After being promoted to their first team, the Spaniard has gone on to play 43 games, scoring five and assisting seven.

Firpo is naturally a left-back but he can play slightly higher up on the left-hand side and he has even played 12 games at the centre-back spot.

Firpo a Valencia & Young replacement?

If Man United are eyeing Firpo, it would make some sense given the situations with Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia.

Ashley Young is now 33 years of age and is unlikely to be at Old Trafford for much longer.

Granted he has reportedly been made Man United’s captain for the upcoming season but with him being 33, it is hard to see him playing a lot of games in the upcoming campaign.

The Red Devils have also lost Antonio Valencia after the full-back departed Old Trafford due to his contract expiring.

Thank you, @antoniovalencia2525.

Man United could lose yet another full-back this summer with the out of favour Matteo Darmian reportedly keen to return to Italy.

As a result, United really need to start thinking about signing some replacements in the full-back department with Firpo seemingly on their list of targets.
