Manchester United are chasing the transfer of a new left back with Wolfsburg’s Ricardo Rodriguez at the top of the list, according to reports.
The Red Devils are looking for a replacement for the injured Luke Shaw and they believe the Swiss international. The 23 years old has been an integral part of the Wolfsburg set up and has 33 caps to his credit for his National team.
United have deputised several players at the left side of the defence with Ashley young, Daley Blind and Argentine international; Marcos Rojo all playing at the left back at one point in time. But it is the latter that have made that position his by putting in series of strong displays.
Rodriguez 23 years old is rated as one of the best full backs in Europe and the Red devils boss sees him as an ideal cover for Luke Shaw. The Swiss international was previously being linked to United when Shaw was not playing too well due to series of injuries before the young English man found his feet.
The Agent of Rodriquez; Gianluca Di Domenico claimed the Red devils had previously made contact over a possible transfer but Luke Shaw’s return to form has made any deal not possible, but with Shaw’s long term injury; a deal could be eminent soon.
