Manchester United were keen on adding a good centre back to their team this summer after Jose Mourinho identified that position as his team’s major problem.
However, the Portuguese boss couldn’t get the club to give him a centre back despite their best attempts to bring in some of the best defenders in the game.
Yerry Mina, Toby Alderweireld, and Rafael Varane were just some of the defenders that were linked with a move to Old Trafford, but none of them were signed by the Red Devils.
Fresh reports from Talksport is claiming that the Red Devils wanted to sign Lucas Hernandez from Atletico Madrid, but the French man turned them down.
Hernandez has a 45 million pound release clause on his current deal, and Manchester United offered the Spaniard’s 70 million pounds, which caused to consider selling him.
However, Hernandez is reported to have turned down the offer and instead committed himself to a new deal at the Wanda Metropolitana.
