Manchester United are likely to submit a bid for the Argentine centre-back, who has already earned loads of plaudits in his breakthrough Ligue 1 season.

After Manchester United held Liverpool back to a 0-0 draw at Anfield, questions have been repeatedly asked about whether their attack is steady enough to produce the decisive goals when it matters the most.

But there was a time not too long ago when every United fan was exasperated about the team’s shaky defence. The turnaround at the back has been noticeable, clearly portraying the overall progress that the club have experienced over the past few months.

Despite conceding 24 goals from 18 matches in the Premier League, the Red Devils are at the top of the table for now at least, with the fact that Manchester City’s one remaining game in hand would see them topple the current league leaders.

Manchester United might be set to submit a bid for Facundo Medina

The recent stories surrounding the club’s future incomings keep on suggesting that a fresh arrival is imminent sooner rather than later. The French outlet named La Voix du Nord reveals that Manchester United are moving closer to submitting a bid for the 21-year-old RC Lens defender, Facundo Medina.

It has been mentioned that Ed Woodward and company are considering making an offer of around €12 million for the centre-half this January.

Having gained promotion last summer, Lens are having a decent campaign by their standard, occupying the 7th spot in the top tier of French football.

Talking about the player, Facundo Medina is a left-footed centre-back who can occasionally play as a left-back. Having joined from the Argentine side Atlético Talleres for just over €3 million transfer fee last summer, Medina has made 12 appearances in the league this season, doing enough to entice a number of potential suitors.

As mentioned by the report, if the French club doesn’t want to sell the youngster halfway into the campaign, the Red Devils could add an offer of a six-month loan back to Lens for the rest of the season.
