Manchester United need Harry Maguire’s partner. So they may return West Ham defender Issa Diop in order to strengthen the defensive line before the new season starts.

Manchester United are looking for Harry Maguire’s partner. So, they are planning to strengthen the defensive line before the start of the new season.

Manchester were actively trying to sign West Ham player Issa Diop last summer. At that time, the clubs could not find a common language and, consequently, no deal was made.

As Skysports writes, Manchester was contacted by the French defender representatives and informed that they have a very real chance to recruit a player. According to the same source, West Ham is ready to buy Issa Diop for 45 million pounds.

In case of reaching an agreement with the “Hammers,” Manchester, as a rule, should not have any difficulty in meeting the salary needs of the player. Diop’s current weekly salary is 50,000.

As you may know, Manchester United were also interested in signing West Ham defender Issa Diop last summer.

According to Sky Sports, United offered the London club 45 million last year and a player whose identity was unknown.

West Ham have reportedly turned down the Devils’ offer because they were asking for at least $ 60 million in exchange for the 22-year-old Frenchman. Finally, the transfer failed.

Issa Diop moved from Toulouse to West Ham in the summer of 2018 in exchange for 25 million euros. In 73 appearances for the London club, the French defender stood out with five goals and one assist.
