Recent reports suggest that Manchester United is engaged in advanced negotiations, contemplating a defensive overhaul.

The focus revolves around the potential departure of Raphael Varane and the prospective arrival of Radu Dragusin.

Sky Sports Germany reveals that Manchester United is willing to entertain offers for Raphael Varane in the January transfer window.

Despite being a World Cup winner and securing a £40 million move from Real Madrid in 2021, Varane has faced limited playing time this season, losing his starting position to Maguire, Evans, and Lindelof.

While Bayern Munich has expressed interest in Varane, Sky Sports Germany suggests that a deal appears improbable, leaving the Frenchman’s future uncertain.

Simultaneously, United is reportedly in advanced talks to secure the services of Radu Dragusin from Genoa.

The 21-year-old defender is seen as a potential replacement for Varane. Comparisons to Old Trafford legend Vidic add weight to Dragusin’s potential significance in bolstering United’s defense.

ProSport, a Romanian publication, discloses that United is ready to make a significant financial commitment to sign Dragusin.

However, Genoa is anticipated to insist on the player’s €30 million (£25 million) release clause.

Operating primarily as a left centre-back, Dragusin could provide a solution to United’s defensive concerns.

The Romanian international has contributed to three clean sheets for Genoa this season, showcasing versatility with a goal and an assist to his name.

Erik ten Hag, expressing dissatisfaction with defensive lapses after a 3-3 Champions League draw with Galatasaray, highlighted the urgency for improvement.

United’s defensive struggles are evident, having conceded 33 goals in all competitions this season, marking their highest tally after 20 games since 1962/63.
