What Man United has shown so far this season is not convincing. All three of their lines need to be reinforced, in which defense is the position that will be prioritized by Erik ten Hag.
According to Romano, Man United’s recruitment of the centre-back could depend on Lisandro Martinez’s fitness in January, while offers for Harry Maguire could also have an impact.
The Italian reporter said: “It is important to see what happens with Lisandro Martinez’s injury and Harry Maguire’s situation. If Man United receives an offer for Maguire, they can invest in a new centre-back in January, otherwise they will wait until the summer.
I understand that Man United’s top priority in 2024 is a centre-backbut it is difficult to reach top players in January.”
Romano added about Sancho’s situation: “I think Jadon Sancho will leave in January. It’s difficult to see things going in favor of him and Man United. Then there will be internal discussions to decide whether do they want to invest in a new winger or not.”
