Celtic must try to sign Manchester United defender

Celtic have a pretty solid team at the moment and have already signed Cameron Carter-Vickers, Jota, Daizen Maeda, Alexandro Bernabei and Benjamin Siegrist to permanent deals this summer. But there are still a few areas where the Hoops could use a little more depth and central defense could very well be one of them.

Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt formed a formidable partnership at the heart of the defense last season, but other than that the club doesn’t have many options there. Stephen Welsh doesn’t seem ready to make regular appearances if one of the duos ends up injured. On the other hand, Christopher Jullien could be on his way out after struggling with game time and fitness in recent times.

Celtic have been spreading their eyes far and wide when it comes to attracting players in recent times and they should be considering a transfer for a struggling Manchester United player in their quest for a centre-back.

The player in question is Axel Tuanzebe. After not getting enough playing time at Manchester United, he was loaned out to Aston Villa and then Napoli last season, but struggled at both clubs. So you would expect him to leave Old Trafford again this summer, and Celtic should see if a deal is possible.

Celtic should try to sign Tuanzebe this summer

Tuanzebe’s current deal with Manchester United was set to expire next summer, but lately we have seen several clubs loan out players in similar situations by activating an option extending their deal for another year so that they can receive a transfer fee. in the future.

Would a loan with option to buy be a possibility for someone like Tuanzebe? We’ll see that later.

However, Tuanzebe was once very highly regarded at Manchester United and has a lot of potential. Many people will remember his incredible performance against PSG, when he defeated Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

The biggest hurdle to a switch for him may be convincing him to come to Celtic, but after failing to impress at both Aston Villa and Napoli last season, he needs a fresh start somewhere and a player of his versatility could a lot of playing time at Parkhead. Also, the Hoops have Champions League football to offer.
