The urgent need for a new left-back at Manchester United is no longer a secret. The Red Devils also reportedly want Jose Gaya’s services, according to Deportes COPE Valencia. The Valencia captain has been a pillar of his squad for many seasons. The Red Devils, though, are thought to be able to lure him away from the La Liga team.
Before the transfer window closed, Erik ten Hag’s team was primarily focused on adding a new central midfielder. But when Luke Shaw sustained a long-term muscular ailment, things changed. The international for England is expected to miss a significant amount of time due to injury. He might miss several months of football.
The Red Devils are therefore trying to sign a new full-back. They don’t have the money to sign a permanent player because they previously used the majority of their budget to sign Mason Mount, Rasmus Hjlund, and Andre Onana.
They are searching for a full-back on a season-long loan agreement since adding one is essential. Marc Cucurella and Marcos Alonso have previously been the subject of negotiations. Cucurella and the Red Devils have already reached a personal agreement, while negotiations with Chelsea are well along.
The Red Devils are thinking about signing Jose Gaya, a 25-year-old Spanish international, while negotiations to loan out the player are still ongoing. The Spaniard joined Valencia’s first team in the summer of 2014 after rising through the levels there. He has become increasingly stronger over the years and has led them for some time.
All three of their La Liga games this year have featured the full-back, who is 28 years old. He is essential to their future ambitions. But Gaya can decide to sign with Manchester United before the deadline day is through.
The Valencia captain is on the radar of the Red Devils, who are desperate to recruit a new full-back. Even Los Che know about the attention, and they worry that he would leave the club. It will be intriguing to watch which left back signs with Manchester United before Friday’s summer transfer deadline.
