Former Red Devil urges Solskjaer to sign this player

Manchester United have looked like a completely different side under new boss and former forward Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The Red Devils have won 5 on the trot across all competitions. During this run, they have amassed 16 goals.  Four of these have come in the Premier League. At one point in time, a top 4 finish was looking like a far fetched time for Manchester United this season. However, owing to their marvelous form lately, that is very much a reality as Manchester United ended game week 21 with 38 points on the board, just 6 shies of fourth-placed Chelsea. One of Manchester United’s major reasons for their struggles this season has been their defense, which has leaked 32 goals already. Former Manchester United player and Solskjaer’s teammate David May insists that the club should sign Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly to solve their defensive woes,

“If you look at United over the last God knows how many years they’ve always gone out and broken transfer records if need be.

“They did with Rio [Ferdinand], [Angel] Di Maria, [Paul] Pogba, [Romelu] Lukaku. They allegedly pay [Alexis] Sanchez half a million a week.

“If you want the best players then you have to pay top money for them. City do it. Liverpool did it with Van Dijk and just look at the transformation.

“They spent £70 million on a goalkeeper, which is a hell of a lot of money but what that gets you back is guaranteed Champions League football and the possibility of winning the Premier League.

The amount of money United earn than to spend £100m on a defender….so what? Real Madrid will spend it. Barca will. Chelsea and City will. If it guarantees you a much better defence then go ahead and spend it.

“If Koulibaly becomes available – and there are rumours that he is interested with a fee of £90m – then I’m sure Ole would say he’d be a great signing for Man Utd.”

Author’s Take

Kalidou Koulibaly is arguably one of the best defenders in Europe right now, if not the best. A signing like him would go a long way in helping Manchester United tighten up at the back.
