Man Utd ‘working on deal for Monaco ace Vanderson’ but face Barca competition

MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly working on a deal to sign Monaco star Vanderson.

But they face competition from Barcelona for the Brazilian right-back.

Sport claims Erik ten Hag is keen on signing a new defender in January.

United’s backline has already improved thanks to the additions of Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia.

And Vanderson, 21, has been earmarked as the next exciting talent to boost the squad.

The former Gremio star only joined Monaco in January, but his fine performances quickly resulted in a new contract.

It’s reckoned Vanderson is valued at over £52m by his club.

But United have shown they are willing to pay high fees if Ten Hag believes it is worthwhile.

There could yet be one issue for the Red Devils though.

That’s because Barcelona are thought to remain interested after targeting Vanderson over the summer.

They balked at Monaco’s asking price when Xavi Hernandez identified the youngster as Dani Alves’ successor.

But Barca’s rebuild has so far gone to plan after a huge summer splurge.

And Xavi is targeting a new right-back amongst others as he looks to keep pace with Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid.

Monaco are now braced for enquiries and bids in the build-up to January.
