Manchester United rival Real Madrid in Yan Couto chase

Manchester United are keen on signing the Manchester City defender Yan Couto at the end of the season.

According to TuttoJuve, Manchester United are not the only club keen on signing the Manchester City defender and they will face competition from champions Real Madrid. The defender is reportedly valued at €40 million and it remains to be seen whether Manchester United can win the race for his signature.

They could certainly use a quality full-back and Couto would be a solid acquisition for the Premier League club. The defender has already shown his quality in La Liga with Girona this season and he will be hoping to compete at a higher level.

The opportunity to join Manchester United will be quite attractive for him. They are one of the biggest clubs in the world and they could provide him with the platform to compete for trophies next season.

Yan Couto would improve Manchester United

Manchester United need a quality full-back who can help them going forward as well. Couto could prove to be an upgrade on Aaron Wan-Bissaka in that regard. The Brazilian has two goals and 10 assists this season.

Meanwhile, Manchester City are already well-stocked in the full-back department and they will not be able to offer him ample game time. It makes sense for them to sell the player permanently this summer.

The reported asking price seems reasonable for a player of his quality and potential. The 21-year-old is likely to improve further with coaching and experience, and he could easily justify the investment in the coming seasons.

Meanwhile, the opportunity to continue in Spanish football could be attractive for the player as well. If Real Madrid are truly interested in securing his signature, he could be tempted. Real Madrid will need to bring a quality long-term replacement for club legend Dani Carvajal and Couto would be a solid acquisition. He’s already well settled in La Liga and he could make an immediate impact at Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants have the financial resources to pay €40 million for him as well. It will be interesting to see where the defender ends up. A move to Manchester United or Real Madrid will be quite exciting for the player and he needs to decide on his future soon.
