Manchester United have been linked with a shock swoop to sign Issa Diop this summer by a new report.
Foot Mercato reports that there is significant interest in signing the central defender at the end of the season, with Lyon and Monaco both said to be keeping tabs on his situation.
And that’s where United come into the equation.
The Frenchman was linked with the club when Jose Mourinho was manager and it now appears that Ralf Rangnick is spearheading a potential pursuit in the next transfer window.
Erik Ten Hag has been appointed as their new manager and Rangnick is set to move into an upstairs role, as he looks to formalise a strategy for the summer.
The report claims that Rangnick was interested in Diop when he was RB Leipzig manager and remains a fan of the Hammer.
It isn’t clear if Diop would be open to such a move, as it is highly likely that he would only be a rotation option at Old Trafford.
