Manchester United ready to pay €35m for Jeison Murillo


Manchester United are eyeing up a move for the Colombian defender Jeison Murillo.

The Inter Milan defender is one of the best centre-backs in Serie A right now and has been linked with a move away this summer.

It appears that Manchester United are ready to strengthen their defence this season.

According to reports from Colombia, Jose Mourinho is expected to take over at Manchester United at the end of this season and has requested the club to strengthen their centre back options with the signing of Jeison Murillo.

The report also states that Manchester United are ready to pay up to 35 million Euros for the South American defender this summer.

Argentine defender Marcos Rojo has been linked with an exit from Old Trafford and it seems Murillo has been identified as an upgrade. Rojo failed to make his mark under the current Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal and has spent most of his time playing out of position or on the bench.

Murillo would be a stunning addition to the Old Trafford outfit. The 23-year-old is also a target for Bayern Munich. However, Guardiola’s exit could change things now.
