Fabrizio Romano says Man Utd keen on ‘one of the most interesting players in Europe’, he cost just £15.5m

Manchester United have had a lot of trouble at left-back this past season and are expected to be in the market for another this summer.

The plan for Manchester United to address Luke Shaw’s persistent injury problems was to bring in Tyrell Malacia.

Malacia had his own injury nightmare this past season, missing every gameday team. All this accomplished was draw more attention to Shaw, who missed all of February’s games due to four different injuries.

United will feel as though they can’t rely on either come season. More cover is needed, and one name that shows promise is already being mentioned.

Milos Kerkez to Manchester United

Manchester United may consider Milos Kerkez, a left-back for Bournemouth.

Ben Jacobs mentioned this possibility back in February during an interview with The United Stand.

Fabrizio Romano maintains that Manchester United is genuinely interested in the 20-year-old as the transfer season approaches.

Romano claims on his YouTube channel that Kerkez is among the most intriguing players on the continent for his position.

He said: “Milos Kerkez, very good talent, one of the most interesting left-backs around Europe. There is interest.”

He adds that there is a warning for Manchester United, commenting: “Bournemouth would really ask for big, big money for him. It’s not going to be an easy one.”

When Manchester United calls clubs, this usually happens. But the Cherries have their justifications. After joining from the Dutch club AZ Alkmaar, Kerkez has only been with the team for a year.

They won’t want to let go of one of their important players so soon because they are committed to hanging onto highly regarded coach Andoni Iraola.

Romano added on X: “Manchester United will bring in new left back for sure this summer… Milos Kerkez, one of the players being monitored for that position. No talks yet but appreciated.”

How much Bournemouth paid for Kerkez

According to the Echo, Bournemouth only spent £15.5 million for Milos Kerkez last summer. Slightly more than what United spent for Tyrell Malacia a year prior, it was an incredible deal.

After one season, everything seemed promising with the Malacia agreement, but then his injuries happened.

Though it is unknown how much United intends to spend on a left-back, Kerkez is an extremely interesting talent. Priorities are anticipated to be in midfield, defence, and the striker.

Although he is in there, the club will not want to spend a lot of money on a left-back. Malacia’s future isn’t a “write-off,” but he still needs to regain some credibility.

If United signs another left-back, he might even be loaned out or only serve as cover.

Bournemouth’s demands could price United out the hunt for his signature, for this summer at least.
