Manchester United have endured a very slow transfer market but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils are keen to bring in world-class players to massively improve the quality of the squad before the transfer window officially closes on October 5th, oyogist.com reports.

According to fresh reports, Manchester United are set to storm the transfer market as the English giants are looking to complete the signing of Caglar Soyuncu from Leicester City in a massive deal.

Manchester United are in the transfer market to sign a new Centre-back as the team is very weak defensively and a move for Caglar Soyuncu is reportedly gathering pace in the last few days as both Manchester United and Leicester City have held talks concerning the Turkish defender. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to storm Leicester City again by signing their key defender after the Red Devils signed Harry Maguire from the club last summer.

24-Year Old Caglar Soyuncu has been regarded as one of the best defenders in the EPL has his impressive performances for Leicester City last season impressed several top clubs around Europe and also in England. Soyuncu has become an integral member of Brendan Rodgers’ team at Leicester City as he helped replace Harry Maguire when he left the club for Manchester United in a world record move for a defender.


Manchester United and Leicester City have opened talks as the Red Devils are really keen to complete the transfer of a defender this summer. However, Manchester United will have to pay a fee in the region of £60million to complete the signing of Soyuncu from Leicester City this summer as the Turkish defender is highly rated by the English club.

Caglar Soyuncu is exactly what Manchester United needs in defense as he his very commanding presence in defense, he is strong in the air, his excellent passing range and reading of the game will be a massive addition for Manchester United this season and for many years. Caglar Soyuncu and Harry Maguire will be able to form a very solid defensive partnership which will enable United compete for trophies.

Also, Manchester United are reportedly confident in completing the deal as Leicester City have completed the signing of St Etienne highly rated defender Wesley Fofana who will be a replacement for Soyuncu should he join the Red Devils this summer. Soyuncu will likely sign a 5-Years contract should all terms be agreed upon by Manchester United and Leicester City in the next coming days.

Manchester United were handed a ‘group of death’ in the Champions League and the signing of a defender like Soyuncu will increase their chance of progressing in the Champions league and also compete with the likes of likes of Liverpool and Manchester City for Premier League glory.
