Man United 'hatch £60m defender transfer plan' as Sir Jim Ratcliffe player targeted

Manchester United will be busy looking ahead to the summer transfer window in the coming weeks.

United finished the season in eighth place in the Premier League but managed to secure a spot in the Europa League thanks to their win in the FA Cup. Victory at Wembley Stadium clinched Erik ten Hag's second trophy as United manager.

Despite the success, Ten Hag's future continues to be the subject of speculation. Even though it remains uncertain who will be United manager next season, the Reds are still being linked with potential new signings.

The latest rumours centre around United possibly signing two centre-backs when the transfer window opens. The centre of defence is a position that United are looking to strengthen with new signings this summer.

According to Give Me Sport, United have a plan for the eventuality that they fail to sign Everton star Jarrad Branthwaite. The report claims that Crystal Palace star Marc Guehi has been identified as an alternative target in the event that the Reds are not able to bring Branthwaite to Old Trafford.

It has been stated that Palace value Guehi at £60 million, a fee that the Selhurst Park club are unwilling to negotiate any lower. As a result, United will make a move to sign Guehi if they are not able to bring Branthwaite to Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, United are continuing to be linked with a move for Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo. According to The Telegraph, United could still make a move to sign the centre-back this summer.
