Ralf Rangnick can add some fight to Man United defence with £16m ‘Gladiator’ transfer – Casey Evans

Ralf Rangnick has an important transfer window ahead. The mid-season window is generally quiet for most teams, but if the rumors are to be believed, it could be crowded for Manchester United.

Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial and even Dean Henderson have all been directed to leave Old Trafford and United have been linked with the moves of a defensive midfielder and right-back.

One area Rangnick may want to look for reinforcements is in the central defence. Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are the club’s current group of centre-backs options, although a number of recurring injuries could leave Rangnick looking to strengthen.

Jones’ future at United has come into question a lot of late, while Bayley has also previously stated his desire to play football on a regular basis, so if an offer is made to either defender, United might consider letting them leave.

This potentially opens up a place for another central defender in the squad and United are rumored to be considering a move for Marcos Senesi.

The Argentine is currently plying his trade in the Eredivisie with Feyenoord. 90 Minutes report that United are among a number of Premier League clubs interested in the defender who has only 18 months left on his current contract and could therefore be available for a reduced fee.

Senesi was nicknamed “The Gladiator” for his unrelenting one-on-one defensive tackle and became a crowd favorite in Feyenoord.

He is suitable to play in a team that is looking to adopt a high streak and is very comfortable in possession, carrying the ball into the final third and also distributing the ball forward to contribute to the building of the team’s play.

However, if he does move to United, the dangerous nature of Senese’s play means he will need to partner with a defender capable of covering his mistakes. Varane would be perfect in this role and Fred or Scott McTominay would also be able to help out.

Transfermarkt values ​​Senesi at £16.4m and given the excellent reputation he has gained in the Netherlands, it could be worth United to take a bet.
