After ‘discussions,’ Man Utd’s next manager may already have the ideal first transfer in place.

MANCHESTER UNITED are hoping to pull off a major coup later this month.

As Old Trafford chiefs consider a move for Dan-Axel Zagadou, the next Manchester United could have the perfect first transfer in place.

The season-long contract of the Borussia Dortmund defender expires at the end of the year.

With French centre-back Zagadou possibly available for free, United’s next manager could be handed the perfect first signing.

In recent years, the 22-year-old has mostly served as a fill-in for Dortmund, but he has proven to be a valuable asset when called upon.

The 6’6 defender, who has represented France at all levels since he was a child, has yet to sign a new contract at the Signal Iduna Park, which expires in the summer.

According to recent reports from France, United is planning to sign him to a pre-contract agreement this month.

United and Moussa Sissoko, Zagadou’s agent, have held talks, according to Foot Mercato.

While in charge of Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig, current United manager Ralf Rangnick witnessed Zagadou’s rise.

Rangnick is expected to move into a behind-the-scenes role next season, with a new man in charge.

With Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane struggling, a free transfer for a quality centre-back like Zagadou would be the ideal welcome present for the new manager.

United aren’t the only ones interested in Zagadou, with mega-rich Newcastle and a slew of other top clubs mentioned in the report.

Rangnick admitted that there were players under contract who wanted to leave, so the next manager may have some money to work with.

Rangnick explained, “We have players whose contracts are up in the summer.”

“We may have one or two players under contract who want to leave.”

“It’s about the players dealing professionally with the situation.”

Everyone has the opportunity to participate in training, show up, and play.

If this is not the case, the player, club, and agents must, of course, discuss the situation.

“So far, the players have, as far as I can tell.”
