BREAKING NEWS: Man United now make first move to sign “complete” player alongside Kim Min-Jae

RB Leipzig defender Mohamed Simakan is reportedly attracting interest from Manchester United.

What Manchester United transfer rumors are currently circulating around Simakan?
This summer, it appears that the Red Devils are searching for defensive reinforcements, with Kim Min-jae of Napoli being a potential target. Recent sources state that after communicating with the South Korean international’s representation, United has now made him a contract offer.

The transfer of Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly, and Harry Maguire was approved by Erik ten Hag, though, so it’s probable that Old Trafford will need to recruit another center-back. Simakan seems to be another target.

Journalist Santi Aouna recently utilized Twitter to relay information on Simakan that he had heard. He mentioned the signing of Kim and asserted that talks concerning the Frenchman had already taken place between the Red Devils and Arsenal.

“I understand that Manchester United and Arsenal are both interested in Mohamed Simakan. Many English clubs are curious. Kim Min-Jae and MU are still in touch. Both the Red Devils’ project and their financial request have been presented.

Who is Simakan?
Simakan can play as a holding midfielder or right defender in addition to his primary position as a center-back. He is at the height of his game, as evidenced by his career-high Transfermarkt valuation of €28 million.

Jacek Kulig, a football talent scout, lauded the 23-year-old as a “complete center-back” after he moved from Strasbourg to Leipzig in 2021.

“One of Europe’s top young defenders. Strong, swift, adaptable, and excellent with the ball. a full-time center-back who can also play right-back. reminds me of an early Lilian Thuram.

This season, Simakan has alternated between playing right and center back, contributing to an incredible 11 goals across all competitions. His versatility might make him a smart addition to the Old Trafford squad as he can compete with Kim, Raphael Varane, and Lisandro Martinez at centre back while also stepping in at right back and in midfield. Although the Red Devils might need to beat Arsenal to Simakan’s signing, it seems like this is a transaction to keep an eye on.
