January 13, 2023

The army of coach Erik ten Hag is about to welcome the “rock” with impressive defensive techniques from Ligue 1.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Man United have started monitoring the situation of AS Monaco defender Axel Disasi. The French star has been one of the most promising talents in Ligue 1 in recent years. Coach Erik ten Hag needs a backup plan for the duo Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez in the heart of the Red Devils defence.

Interestingly, the Dutch strategist recently used Luke Shaw as an interim centre-back, despite the possession of Harry Maguire in the squad. It can be seen that the future of the 29-year-old midfielder at Old Trafford is extremely uncertain. There have even been calls for Maguire to leave Old Trafford to play more often.

But with the current squad depth, Ten Hag only accepts to let Maguire leave if there is someone who can replace this player. The England defender has recently been linked with Aston Villa. However, it is likely that Maguire will stay at Old Trafford for the rest of the season. Meanwhile, the Red Devils will enlist a new central defender, namely Disasi.

The French star possesses an impressive set of skills to neutralize dangerous situations, and is also a skilled passer of the ball. So signing him will allow United to play attacking from behind effectively. At the age of 24, Disasi has made significant strides and still has plenty of time to develop into the top European superstar in his place.

However, the player born in 1998 will need time to rub and get used to the harsh nature of the Premier League. It’s not too difficult a task for someone who is considered one of the most talented central defenders in Ligue 1. Plus with the impressive physical advantage and height of 1.9m , Disasi is always ready to play at a high level. tallest. He is being valued by Transfermarkt at 25 million euros.

This player can also start on the right side of the defense. This flexibility will help Disasi impress Ten Hag more. The 24-year-old has a contract until 2025, which means AS Monaco will not sell him cheaply. However, the Red Devils are willing to spend money to invest in this attractive deal.

Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur are two big teams that also want Disasi’s signature. But Man United is confident of winning on the negotiating table with Ten Hag’s ambitious plan and the team’s strong financial potential
