Manchester United set to make former Liverpool target their first January signing

Manchester United need reinforcements

By their lofty standards, and those of Cristiano Ronaldo, it has been a horrific start to the season for Manchester United.

The Red Devils sit a whopping 14 points off the pace, albeit with a game in hand, and have gone from title challengers to European hopefuls between September and Christmas. The fall from grace has been shocking, and they continue to struggle despite 1-0 wins over Norwich and Crystal Palace.

Now under the caretaker charge of Ralf Rangnick, they will be looking to address some of their gaping deficiencies in the January transfer window, not least in central midfield.

Kamara the man?

Step forward, Boubacar Kamara.

Linked with Liverpool last summer, the 22-year-old Frenchman has just 6 months to left on his contract with Marseilles, but remains a key player for Jorge Sampaoli’s side, having featured 14 times in Ligue 1 so far this campaign.

Nonetheless, he is set to depart in January, with this the last time that his side can recoup any sort of fee for the French U21 international, and Manchester United are set to pounce.

As per FourFourTwo:

Manchester United are in advanced negotiations with Marseille to make Ralf Rangnick’s first signing.

They even suggest that it will take as little as 10 million pounds to prize him out of France, less than half of his true value (currently at 22.5 million according to transfermarkt).

Able to play as a centre back, sole defensive midfielder or part of a double pivot, Kamara will be a massive asset to Ralf Rangnick that could allow him to exhibit a great deal of tactical flexibility as he looks to work with a top-heavy Manchester United squad.

Will Kamara be a hit in Manchester?
