Second summer signing confirmed: Manchester United have agreed personal terms to sign £60m full back,terms agreed already, announcement imminent

The versatile defender has impressed with his duel winning ability, tackling and recoveries. However, he is equally good going forward, considering his early career as a forward. Kadioglu has fantastic dribbling skills to get behind defenders. He averaged 2.4 key passes for Turkey at Euro 2024.

Arsenal were exploring a deal for him earlier this summer, but the interest has somewhat subsided with their pursuit of Bologna star Riccardo Calafiori, who can play in central defence or at left-back. With the Italian on the verge of joining the club, it could probably end the Gunners’ pursuit of Kadioglu.

This would be a huge boost for United, who are yearning for fresh options in both full-back roles. Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia have been injury-prone and the Red Devils need a reliable figure at left-back. Kadioglu could also act as cover for Diogo Dalot at right-back, should Aaron Wan-Bissaka leave the club.

United may have to pay £30 million for the versatile defender, who has made the most tackles at Euro 2024 (18).
