Arsenal, Barcelona rival Manchester United in Yan Couto chase

Arsenal and Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City defender Yan Couto, a target for Manchester United.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal have now joined the race to sign Yan Couto in the summer transfer window. The 21-year-old Brazilian defender is currently on loan at Spanish club Girona, and he has been outstanding for them. He has 10 assists in all competitions, and clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona are keen on him.

The youngster has been linked with Real Madrid as well. Couto does not have a long-term future at Manchester City, and the Premier League champions are likely to cash in on him at the end of the season. It will be interesting to see if Arsenal, Barcelona, and Manchester United can get the deal done.

Arsenal could certainly use more quality in the full-back department. They need someone with a balanced skill set who can contribute at both ends of the pitch. The 21-year-old should prove to be a quality long term acquisition.

Meanwhile, Barcelona need more quality in the full-back department as well, and signing someone who is already performing at a high level in La Liga would be a wise decision. He could be available for a reasonable price as well.

Manchester United need a new full-back

Meanwhile, Manchester United need to bring in a quality full back and the Brazilian could prove to be an upgrade on Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who will likely depart from Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.

The former Crystal Palace defender has been a reliable performer defensively but he leaves a lot to be desired going forward. A club of Manchester United’s stature needs someone who can help out in the attack as well, and the 21-year-old Brazilian defender would be the ideal acquisition for them.

The opportunity to join clubs like Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester United will be quite exciting for the young defender, and he will be looking to join them if the opportunity presents itself.

It will be interesting to see if Arsenal and Manchester United come forward with concrete proposals for the defender at the end of the season. While there is no doubt that Manchester City will look to sell the player in the coming weeks, it will be interesting to see if they are ready to sanction his departure to their direct rivals.

The 21-year-old has proven his quality with Girona, and he will look to join a club capable of winning major trophies. It remains to be seen where he ends up eventually.
