Manchester United have received a major boost in their bid to bolster their defence this coming summer with a huge update on the status of target Andreas Christensen.

Transfer expert Ben Jacobs has confirmed that the Dane just may leave Barcelona this summer ergo a move to Manchester cannot be ruled out.

While speaking to CaughtOffside on his Daily Briefing column, Jacobs categorically stated that Christensen’s future is not certain, and it will be interesting to see how that unfolds in the summer.

“Sources say it’s not impossible Andreas Christensen is sold even though the player is reluctant to depart – which seems to be common amongst potential outgoings,” Jacobs said.

An earlier report from Football Insider confirmed that the Danish defender was being targeted by both Manchester United and Newcastle.

With this latest report from Jacobs, the Red Devils just may be the lucky winners of the Champions League winner.

It is expected to be a summer of rebuilding in all departments at Manchester United, especially in defence, on account of all the uncertainties that have prevailed this season.

Manchester United’s best defender in Lisandro Martínez, has been injured three quarters of the season and the defensive instabilities have shaken up the club’s momentum all season.

Raphael Varane who is absolutely class just may be leaving at the end of his contract in June, so United are in desperate need of defensive reinforcements.

If Christensen becomes available, he could be an absolute steal for all interested parties.

This is especially considering he has already proven himself in the Premier League as he was a crucial part of Chelsea’s squad, even winning Europe’s premier club competition in 2021.

Another temping prospect is the fact that Barça are going to be desperate to make sales as they try to recover from a financial crisis. As such, less integral players of their squad could end up being sacrificed for some revenue, including Christensen.
