Manchester United has held discussions over a move for Paris Saint-Germain’s defender as Erik ten Hag looks to bring in a new right-back this summer, according to Football Transfers via TeamTalk.
The player joined Les Parisiens last summer for a fee of £60 million (€71m) from Inter Milan and he helped PSG win the Ligue 1 title last season.
Man Utd is expected to sign a new right-back this summer and Football Transfers claims Hakimi has emerged as a potential target. The source says United chiefs have held discussions about a possible move and Erik ten Hag “really likes” the player.
However, the only potential issue could be his price as Hakimi is valued at around £58m (source: transfermarkt) so any move for the 23-year-old wouldn’t be cheap.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been tipped to leave Old Trafford this summer.
There have been concerns about his attacking output and ten Hag is looking at other options that could fit into his system.
However, the Englishman’s hefty salary and the length of his contract are major obstacles between him staying and leaving. Wan-Bissaka’s contract with United expires in 2024
Hakimi appears to be on Man Utd’s radar as a potential replacement but with the PSG star expensive, Football Transfers says Inter’s Denzel Dumfries and Southampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters are also on ten Hag’s list.
The Red Devils are finally getting a move on in the summer market.
Tyrell Malacia completed his move to Old Trafford earlier this month. And since then Manchester United has signed Christian Eriksen (free transfer) while a deal is in place for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.
