Manchester United are ready to initiate discussions with Monaco defender Axel Disasi regarding a potential transfer to Old Trafford.
According to a recent report by L’Equipe, Manchester United has expressed interest in acquiring Disasi’s services and is preparing for direct negotiations with the player. This move would enable Disasi to have a direct conversation with manager Ten Hag. It is worth noting that Arsenal and Chelsea are also reportedly keeping an eye on the 25-year-old defender.
Disasi has established himself as a crucial player for Monaco in the past few seasons, accumulating 129 appearances for the French club. Additionally, he has represented France on four occasions. It remains uncertain whether Arsenal and Chelsea will actively compete with United for his signature. Manchester United is expected to face the departure of Kalidou Koulibaly to Saudi Arabia in the upcoming summer, while Arsenal is seeking reinforcements in multiple positions.
While Disasi is attracting interest from multiple clubs, the report suggests that United is currently in the front position to secure his signing. But the deal’s outcome could depend on Ten Hag’s discussion with the player. United is aiming to recover from the setback of losing out on Kim Min-jae, as the Napoli defender is set to join Bayern Munich.
It appears that Disasi’s future is going to be a key sub-plot of this transfer window, with three top English clubs attempting to buy the defender.
