A report in Le10Sport, have suggested that Manchester United have made contact with RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate and his agent over a potential summer switch to Old Trafford.

Konate, 20, came through the youth ranks at Paris FC and Sochaux before joining Leipzig in 2017, while he has been capped from U16 to U21 level for France.

Only playing eight matches this season due to injury, Konate has appeared in over 71 matches for the Bundesliga giants.

No further details are provided in terms of whether those talks are positive and there is no mention of a possible transfer fee, and so that would suggest that the talks are perhaps still in their early stages.

Bringing in Konate could help fill that void with a long-term solution and further competition for places to keep Victor Lindelof on his toes as well as club captain Harry Maguire.
