Manchester United are reportedly considering making a move for Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino as Bruno Fernandes’ transfer hangs in the air
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pushing hard for a new midfielder to improve United’s chances in the top-four race and has now set his sights on Matias Vecino, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Although Solskjaer’s first choice remains Bruno Fernandes, a £60m move for the in-demand Sporting Lisbon star is still uncertain, and the Norwegian has started monitoring other options.
With Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba both struggling with physical problems, the Red Devils need a new central midfielder to fill the gap and provide depth.
Vecino has not been a regular starter under Antonio Conte this season and could be allowed to switch away from the Giuseppe Meazza should Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen arrives by the end of the transfer window.
The 28-year-old Uruguayan has recorded ten Serie A starts for the Nerazzurri this campaign, managing a goal and an assist.
He has spent his entire European career in Italy, featuring for Fiorentina, Cagliari, and Empoli before moving to Inter in 2017 for a reported fee of €24m.
