With the possible outs of Dalot and Wan-Bissaka, Manchester United has targeted a replacement for the right-back position. Even though the first option in that position is Jeremy Frimpong, the Red Devils have also put their eyes on the Brazilian defender from AS Monaco, Vanderson. The club is ready to position itself for the player services and the market value of the former Gremio is around $18 million.
Although, in the last couple of weeks, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has demonstrated that he is still an important player, showing it in the last game against Brighton, where Mitoma couldn’t complete a single dribble against the English defender. Because of the performance he is showing during the matches, Erik Ten Hag has decided to maintain the player until a solid offer slides across the table; in that case, he will analyze it and declare a possible transfer.
What are his numbers this season?
The 21-year-old has disputed a total of 34 games throughout this season and managed to score 1 goal and deliver 4 assists between Ligue 1, Coupe de France, The Europa League, and the classificatory of the Champions League.
What is the benefit of this player?
Vanderson´s position isn’t only as a right-back, he can also play as a right-winger, to help his teammates when they are losing the game. United could use the player´s versatility when Anthony or another winger is not performing at his best, then Vanderson could be subbed on and change the perspective of the game, without the need of changing Aaron or Dalot if they are making a solid game.
Is United the only team searching for this player?
Unfortunately, Manchester United isn’t the only one who has noticed the young Brazilian. Into the list of the clubs that want this player, its found, the Futbol Club Barcelona, who tried to sign him in March, but the player decided not to make the transfer happen.
