Top Transfer Journalist reveals the four defenders Man United want this summer

Fabrizio Romano has revealed the four centre backs Man Utd are interested in signing this summer.

Juventus star Gleison Bremer, Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo, Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite and Benfica’s Antonio Silva are on Man Utd’s four-man shortlist according to Romano, who says that United will sign one or two central defenders before next season.

“Nothing is decided yet on the future of Erik ten Hag – Manchester United want to wait until after the FA Cup final, and then United want to advance in internal talks to make a decision on Ten Hag as soon as possible,” Romano said on CaughtOffside.

“They want to plan for the new season, with their new board and people from INEOS, but of course the manager will also be crucial and essential to discuss for the future.

“Man United want to involve their coach with their plans, but let’s see if it will be Ten Hag or not. It’s still very open, but we’ll see in the next weeks, after the FA Cup final, nothing is decided one side or the other just yet.

“Obviously this is going to have an impact on the market – United will be super busy this summer as many players will be leaving and the club also plan for many new players to join. We know United are looking for a new centre-back, maybe two.

“Nothing is close now for United, despite rumours. There are things to clarify internally before moving forward with new signings. I keep mentioning Gleison Bremer, Jean-Clair Todibo, Jarrad Branthwaite, and Antonio Silva among the centre-backs they like but it’s really open still, no decision has been made.”

Man Utd desperately need to sign centre backs this summer as a number of players will leave this summer in this position.

Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans’ contracts expire at the end of the season and will be released on free transfers.

Meanwhile, the futures of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire are very much in doubt.

Only Lisandro Martinez from United’s established centre backs is guaranteed to stay next season
