Incoming Manchester United sporting director Dan Ashworth has reportedly been given the go-ahead to push for two top defenders.

Ashworth’s appointment is all but confirmed, and he is currently on gardening leave at Newcastle as negotiations between the two clubs proceed to strike a deal for the highly rated executive.

As per Givemesport, Ashworth has been given the greenlight to push and secure deals for defenders Jeremie Frimpong of Bayer Leverkusen and Gleison Bremer of Juventus.

The Red Devils are gearing up for what they hope will be an exciting new era and one which can see the club return to challenging for the game’s very top prizes, and top signings like these are not a bad place to start.

Jeremie Frimpong has this season cemented himself undoubtedly as one of the finest full backs in Europe, excelling brilliantly under Xabi Alonso.

He and fellow wing back Alejandro Grimaldo have been a major source of goals and assists for Xabi’s table-topping Leverkusen.

On track to become a title winner in the Bundesliga this season, Frimpong has an incredible 11 goals and seven assists this season.

This very impressive form has deservedly seen him mentioned as a top target for a number of big-spending clubs.

In addition to Frimpong, United’s interest in signing a new centre-half is well documented. Much of the focus has revolved around Juventus’ Gleison Bremer.

Reports in Italy are convinced that Juventus star Bremer is actually their top target, and reports are gathering that talks have already opened over a potential swap deal with the Serie A giants.

Calciomercato claims United have now made it clear to the Bianconeri they are willing to meet the Brazilian’s exit clause, which is pitched at between €50m and €57m.

With Juventus virtually powerless to prevent a deal going through, it is now claimed there is optimism on United’s part that a deal can be done.
