Manchester United, AC Milan all closing in on Boubacar Kamara
With new changes in management, Man Utd are hoping to get back into the title race once again. In his short time at the club, new interim manager Ralf Rangnick has already pinpointed midfield as a pressing issue. The team lacks consistency in the given position with both CDMs and CAMs.
While Paul Pogba’s future at Old Trafford is uncertain, DMs Fred, Scott McTominay, and Nemanja Matic have all been under a lot of criticism. As a result, the German manager has already come up with a shortlist of midfielders to be targeted in the upcoming transfer windows. Kalvin Philips, Jude Bellingham, and Frenkie de Jong are all under the Red Devils’ radar, with Kamara being the cheapest option available.
The Premier League team could start pushing for the player as soon as the transfer window opens, however they will be facing competition. AC Milan will also be in the market for the player with Franck Kessie looking increasingly likely to leave San Siro next year.
Kamara could fit in perfectly in the United team
Kamara’s tackling and defensive capabilities are efficient enough to fit in Rnagnick’s new pressing system. Even though Fred seems to be on the right track at the moment, his inconsistency always keeps him in question.
Therefore, Kamara’s introduction could strengthen the Red Devils’ midfield and also provide the manager with a solid DM at his disposal. While being firm on the ground, the youngster is also solid in aerial duels. Along with his defensive abilities, the player’s passing makes him a great driving force in the midfield.
With a stronger financial influence, the English side will have a strong advantage in their clash for the player.
