Sergino Dest and Vanderson are the two options Man United will decide between as the right-back reinforcement in the ongoing transfer window. And the Red Devils are set to step up their attempts to add the Monaco right-back, with Barcelona also keen on signing the defender.
Vanderson joined Les Monegasques from Gremio in winter this year and has gradually risen in stature at Monaco. The 21-year-old right-back is now the first-choice defender for the French club, turning out five times thus far this campaign, including in the failed qualification campaign for the Champions League.
The Brazilian defender has made a remarkable impression on several European bigwigs despite only being in Europe for nearly six months. And the South American defender’s strong start to the campaign has captured the attention of Barcelona and Man United.
The Brazilian has thus emerged as a viable target for the Blaugrana after Cesar Azpilicueta snubbed them to stay at Chelsea. But the Catalan giants will have to fend off stiff competition from the Red Devils to secure the services of the former Gremio right-back in the ongoing transfer window.
The interest from Man United stems from the unimpressive displays of Wan-Bissaka and Dalot, with the former not featuring in Erik ten Hag’s plans. The two defenders are coincidentally on the Blaugrana’s radar this summer, and the Red Devils will need a new option for the position.
