The 24-years-old is enjoying a stellar campaign with the Wolves this term, starting every Premier League game this season and scoring a solitary goal. The centre-back has also assisted his team to achieve eight clean sheets. Bruno Lage’s side are currently displaying the second-best defensive performance in the league this season, conceding only 15 goals in 20 games.
According to the report, Ralf Rangnick has delivered a presentation to the club’s hierarchy on where the Red Devils need addressing in order to stop the recent downfall and the German boss has pointed out the need of strengthening the defence.
The report further claims that the performance of Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw didn’t impress the 63-year-old boss and he wants to bring in some new faces. The Molineux man Max Kilman has been one of the players who has impressed Rangnick the most this season.
The report also stated that Fred has made a very good impression on the new boss and the German wants to keep the 29-year-old in his squad if his side develops into a pressing team going forward. Meanwhile, RB Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara is among the players in Rangnick’s list who the 63-year-old wants to bring in at the Old Trafford stadium.
Should Manchester United go for Wolverhampton defender Max Kilman?
Signing Max Kilman could be a very good addition for Manchester United. The defender is tall, strong, comfortable on the ball and is excellent in the air. The Englishman has every attribute in his armoury to become a world-class centre-back in future.
With the Red Devils’ captain, Harry Maguire enduring a difficult season this term and Eric Bailly having struggled to showcase his best in the Premier League since joining the club, strengthening the backline will be a shrewd decision from the Old Trafford hierarchy.
Therefore, it will be interesting to see what Manchester United decide to do about their defensive issues. The Red Devils signed Raphael Varane in the summer in order to address their backline. But, the Frenchman has struggled with his injury problems.
However, the France international and Victor Lindelof played well in the last two games against Aston Villa but it is highly likely that Ralf Rangnick will change the centre back pairing in the next game against Brentford and bring back the England international.
