Man Utd ready to move for Napoli defender as Trippier talk continues

Date published: Wednesday 19th June 2019 8:46

Manchester United are considering a summer bid for Napoli full-back Elseid Hysaj this summer, according to one journalist.

The Red Devils missed out on Champions League football, and defence is believed to be a major area that he is looking to upgrade.

They have been linked to a number of full-back targets this summer, and they are particularly looking to upgrade at right-back with Antonio Valencia on his way out and Matteo Darmian possible following him.

According to respected Italian transfer pundit Gianluca Di Marzio, United are examining the possibility of signing Hysaj from Napoli this summer.

The Albania international has been linked with a move to Chelsea as well as Inter and Atletico Madrid in the past, who have enquired about his valuation.

He recently stirred up speculation that he will leave Naples after admitting that he is ‘absolutely ready for a new adventure’.

The Serie A giants have already essentially secured his replacement with Giovanni Di Lorenzo arriving from Empoli, while Hysaj also found himself behind Kevin Malcuit in the pecking order.

Di Marzio goes on to claim that Napoli could go back in for Tottenham Hotspur’s Kieran Trippier if they were to sell Hysaj, with Juventus also interested in the England international.
