In Manchester United’s orbit, there is a clear target for the next January transfer market: Nordi Mukiele, the talented 22-year-old French right-back, currently in the ranks of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Although Mukiele arrived at PSG in the summer of 2022 with high expectations, his role has been limited since then, opening the door to rumors of a possible departure from the French club.
According to ‘ Calciomercato ‘, Manchester United coach Erik Ten Hag seems determined to convince Mukiele to cross the English Channel and join the English team. United’s need to strengthen their defense is evident, and Mukiele offers a versatile solution. Although his primary position is right-back, he can also play an important role as a center-back, a quality that the Old Trafford team could make the most of.
Mukiele is an emerging talent in European football, known for his speed, stamina, and ability to join the attack. His experience in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig before joining PSG would fit well in the Premier League, which often demands defenders with both defensive and offensive skills.
They need to strengthen their defense
Mukiele’s potential arrival at Manchester United would be a significant boost for Ten Hag’s side as they look to regain their status as contenders in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League. However, PSG might not be willing to let him go easily, so negotiations promise to be interesting in the coming months.
