Man Utd Shortlist Left-Footed Centre-Back As Possible Defensive Reinforcement

Manchester United are impressed with Facundo Medina’s displays since joining RC Lens this summer for €3.5m, according to RMC Sport.

The 21-year-old, a left-footed centre-back, arrived in France from Argentine outfit Talleres, with the defender previously coming through the ranks of homeland giants River Plate.

Lens have looked solid so far this season, despite just being promoted to Ligue 1 they find themselves seventh in the table and holding a game in hand over most other teams in the division.

RMC Sport claim that United have now shortlisted the ace, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side eyeing reinforcements at centre-back.

The same report adds that Medina is not a priority target at this moment in time, but the fact he’s been shortlisted show that his impressive start to European football hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Medina has started 10 of Lens’ 16 fixtures in the French top-flight so far this season, with the defender also having made an appearance off the bench this term.
