Manchester United contemplate Juan Miranda swoop

Manchester United are reportedly considering a Bosman move for 24-year-old Spanish full-back Juan Miranda heading into the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Graeme Bailey on HITC, Juan Miranda is the subject of interest from Manchester United. The Red Devils are scouring the market for a left-back heading into the summer transfer window. And they have set their sights on the 24-year-old Real Betis full-back.

Juan Miranda and his journey at Real Betis

Juan Miranda has resurrected his stuttering career since joining Real Betis from Barcelona. Los Verdiblancos initially sealed a season-long loan move for the Spanish full-back in October 2020 before completing a permanent deal on a free transfer in July 2021. Since then, he has come leaps and bounds at the Benito Villamarin Stadium.

The 24-year-old has turned out over 100 times thus far for Real Betis, chipping in with eight goals and 11 assists. However, Miranda’s long-term future at the Andalusian club is uncertain, as he has entered the final two months of his contract. Such a situation has captured the attention of several well-known clubs across Europe.

Recent reports have linked the former Barcelona defender with Crystal Palace and West Ham United. The Spaniard has now emerged as a target for Manchester United, with the Red Devils keen on signing a left-back in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United interested in Miranda

The left-back berth has been the Achilles Heel for Manchester United throughout the 2023/24 campaign. Luke Shaw has missed the majority of the season with persistent injury issues, while a long-term knee complaint has forced Tyrell Malacia to miss the entirety of the term. So, it is hardly surprising that Manchester United will delve into the market for a left-back in the summer transfer window.

Several candidates, including Melvin Bard and Jorrel Hato, have emerged on Manchester United’s radar. However, Juan Miranda is also an option worth considering for the Premier League heavyweights. The Spaniard’s impending free-agent status also makes him an attractive option for the Red Devils.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United’s search for a left-back ends with a Bosman move for Miranda. However, the 24-year-old Spanish left-back has emerged as a viable target for the Premier League giants.
