Manchester United are reported to be 'close' to a summer transfer window signing of Monaco defender Axel Disasi.

Manchester United manager Eric ten Hag has reiterated in the media that he has explained his ideas to improve the Red Devils for next season's campaign and the move for the Frenchman should start the major overhaul that is expected at the club.

England defender Harry Maguire has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, whilst Ivorian centre-back Eric Bailly and Brazil wing-back Alex Telles who were both on loan last season, will be made available on the market.

The 25-year-old Disasi has been in impressive form during the 2022/23 season, featuring in all of Monaco's Ligue 1 matches this season, scoring three times and registering a further three assists in 38 games.

However, the French giants failed to secure a European Cup berth following a disappointing sixth-place finish in the league standings.

The financial consequence of failing to secure a lucrative European Cup spot has led to Monaco being willing to sell their prized asset to balance their budget for next season.

It has been reported that Monaco will want around £34 million for the defender, but the move will depend on the Old Trafford side quickly securing the services of top South Korean defensive target Kim Min Jae, 26, from Serie A champions Napoli this summer.

It will be interesting to see when negotiations start between Manchester United and Monaco or if other offers will tempt the France defender.
