Manchester United run rule over Manuel Ugarte at Copa America

Manuel Ugarte has been linked with a move away from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, and Manchester United are keen on him.

According to a report from Graeme Bailey on TBR Football, Manchester United have been scouting Manuel Ugarte, who cost Paris Saint-Germain £51 million last summer. Meanwhile, the Uruguayan international is keen on moving to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old has struggled for regular game time since joining PSG from Sporting CP in a £51 million deal last summer, and he could look to move on this summer. A move to the Premier League will be an exciting opportunity, and Manchester United could provide him with the platform to compete for major trophies.

Manchester United need more quality and depth in the middle of the park, and signing a quality defensive midfielder would be a wise decision. Ugarte will help shield the defensive unit, and he will break up opposition attacks as well. His ability to win the ball in the middle of the park will help Manchester United set up counter-attacking opportunities as well. Furthermore, the creative players will be able to operate with more freedom.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United follow up on their interest with an official proposal to sign the player in the coming weeks. They have the financial muscle to get the deal done so, and the fact that the player is keen on joining them will come as a major boost.

Manuel Ugarte would be an upgrade on Casemiro

Casemiro was quite underwhelming last season, and the Brazilian international needs more competition for places. Ugarte could prove to be an upgrade on the former Real Madrid midfielder, and he could eventually replace the Brazilian in the starting line up.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United can secure an agreement with PSG over a reasonable fee. The French outfit do not consider him as a key player. So, they could be open to selling him for a reasonable price. It remains to be seen as the situation develops. Ugarte has the attributes to thrive in English football, and he could be a key player for the Red Devils.
