Manchester United are on the verge of solving all of their defensive issues by signing their number one target.
Jose Mourinho was desperate to sign a new centre back in the summer, but was ultimately unsuccessful. The likes of Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld and Jerome Boateng were linked with a switch to Old Trafford.
Another target, Diego Godin, could be set for a switch. He was linked before the season started but ended up signing a new contract at Atlético Madrid.
Meanwhile, Arsenal and Tottenham are monitoring the situation with Eric Bailly, who has fallen out of favour with Mourinho.
United currently have the fourth worst defensive record in the Premier League.
