Man United transfer news: United set to table the release clause For potential Harry Maguire replacement.

Manchester United have selected Sevilla defender Jules Kounde as a potential replacement for Harry Maguire According to a report by Todofichajes.

The Red Devils are keen on reigniting their shaky defense. They have identified the 23-year-old French defender as the potential replacement for Maguire and centre-back partner for Raphael Varane.

United broke a world-record transfer fee for a defender when they signed Maguire from Leicester City in an £80m deal in 2019.

The 28-year-old was handed over the captain’s armband following the departure of Ashley Young in 2020. Maguire has been an integral part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans at Manchester United despite showing lackluster performances.

However, considering how things are going, Maguire is holding on to a thin thread as the Red Devils have lined up a replacement already.

Kounde has a contract with the Spanish club until 2024. Therefore, Sevilla will no doubt drive a hard bargain over selling one of the most sought after defenders in the world right now.

The French defender was close to switching to Chelsea in the summer. However, the deal didn’t materialize as the Blues were a bit reluctant about meeting their £68m (€80m) asking price.

Manchester United are reportedly contemplating giving in to Sevilla’s request. This means they will have to shell out £68m to trigger Kounde’s release clause.
