Talks held: Man Utd pursuing “exceptional” £38m ace who’s already as good as Martinez – opinion

The centre back missed a huge 42 matches through injury last campaign, with his recovery often met by another setback.

With the number six in mind, let’s take a look at a Man United target who could already be just as good as Martinez.

Man Utd’s search for a new centre back

As per a report from Fabrizio Romano’s Daily Briefing, Man Utd are considering a move for Odilon Kossounou, with talks having been held regarding a potential swoop.

Despite being handed a new offer, the defender hasn’t yet replied to Bayer Leverkusen, as he’s reportedly not opposed to a new adventure.

However, United will face competition from other Premier League clubs for his signature, with Liverpool and Newcastle United both keen.

Why Kossounou could already be as good as Martinez

Ever since his move to Leverkusen in 2021, Kossounou has been a reliable performer when called upon, despite not always being in the starting eleven.
