The 22-year-old joined the German giants back in 2017 from Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain. However, the move hasn’t been a great success for the youngster as he struggled with his injury issues at the Signal Iduna Park, making only 80 appearances in all competitions over the past few seasons and scoring four goals.
According to Aouna, Manchester United are keeping tabs on Dan-Axel Zagadou’s current situation with Borussia Dortmund as the defender’s contract will expire at the end of this season and BVB want to keep hold of their star beyond this campaign.
The report further claims that the Red Devils’ new interim boss Ralf Rangnick has already contacted the player’s agent Moussa Sissoko in order to sign the talented youngster in the summer.
Transfer news: Will Dan-Axel Zagadou be a good addition to the Manchester United squad?
Transfer news: Signing Dan-Axel Zagadou could be a very good acquisition for Manchester United. The defender is strong, quick, brilliant in the air and also comfortable with the ball. So, the Frenchman has every attribute to become a world-class centre-back.
However, the 22-year-old has struggled with his injury problems over the past few campaigns. But, if he can overcome that issue then he could become an asset for the Red Devils, should he were to join the record Premier League champions.
With Eric Bailly getting frustrated due to the lack of game time and wanting to move away from the Old Trafford stadium, signing the Frenchman will be a very good replacement for the Ivory Coast international.
So, it will be interesting to see if Manchester United go for Dan-Axel Zagadou or not. The defender is still very young and has lots of room to develop. And if he can overcome his fitness issues, then he might turn out to be a very good addition to the Red Devils defence.
