Man United ready €50m offer for Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s first signing

Centre-back is set to be a key priority for the Red Devils this summer as the club look to improve a defence which shipped in four goals to Crystal Palace on Monday evening in what was the team’s 13th Premier League defeat of the campaign.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is preparing for his first transfer window in charge of the club’s football operations since his minority purchase of the club earlier this year and faces a sizable rebuilding task if they are to challenge for the top four again next season.
