Man United tracking Lille’s Gabriel Magalhaes

Manchester United have asked to be kept in the loop about offers for Lille OSC defender Gabriel Magalhaes, according to the Daily Record.

The 22-year-old Brazilian has attracted attention from all over, with the likes of Napoli, Inter Milan, Everton and Paris Saint-Germain all believed to be interested in his services. The report suggests Napoli see him as a good replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly, with the Senegal international made available for €75 million and apparently wanted by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola. The Serie A side are ‘understood’ to have already agreed personal terms with the player.

On the other hand, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the hunt for a left-footed centre-back and is considering a swoop for Gabriel to partner captain Harry Maguire in the heart of his defence.

Lille are believed to be holding out for a fee in the region of €25m, meaning Gabriel would represent a significantly lower investment and more of a future prospect than the 29-year-old Koulibaly.
