Transfer Gossip: Manchester United Eyes Defensive Overhaul with Links to Key Targets; Liverpool Faces Fresh Mo Salah Speculation

Red Devils Plan Defensive Clear-Out and Scour Transfer Market, While Al Hilal Expresses Interest in Mo Salah

In a bid to strengthen their defensive lineup, Manchester United is reportedly considering a significant revamp this summer, with potential departures and new arrivals on the horizon, according to ESPN. The changes could include the departure of centre-backs Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans, along with possible exits for Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

United is eyeing Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite, Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo, and Bayern Munich’s Matthijs de Ligt, who is reportedly unhappy with his current playing time. Galatasaray’s Sacha Boey is also on the radar as a potential right-back addition. The Red Devils intend to focus on players entering the final year of their contracts, adopting a strategy similar to the one used for Mason Mount.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Odilon Kossounou is another defensive talent being monitored by United, with the Ivory Coast international impressing in the Bundesliga. The 23-year-old can play as a centre-back or right-back, adding versatility to United’s defensive options.

In goalkeeping considerations, Lazio’s Ivan Provedel has emerged as a potential target for Manchester United, as they explore options to provide competition for or replace Andre Onana. Provedel, at 29, could be a target for a January move.

Meanwhile, Liverpool is facing fresh speculation surrounding the future of their star forward, Mo Salah. Al Hilal is reportedly interested in Salah, who will enter the final year of his contract with Liverpool at the end of the season. The Pro League club may attempt to lure Salah away, hoping to capitalize on the contractual situation. Al Hilal had previously expressed interest in Salah, and the 31-year-old was considered, albeit as a secondary option, in their pursuit of attacking talent last year.
