As it stands, Jose Mourinho is still not satisfied with his squad, despite being on a run of incredible form. The Portuguese is deeply concerned by his side’s unstable defensive line and the everlasting void at left-back.
Consequently, the Red Devils have identified RCD Espanyol defender Aarón Martín as a potential candidate to boost their defensive prowess. The Spaniard quickly impressed the La Liga viewers since making his debut last season, and immediately became a fan-favourite and a regular starter at the RCDE Stadium.
The talented youngster has already been called up to the Spain U21 side, and is regarded as one of the best young defenders in Spain, giving context to interest from the Premier League outfit.
Nevertheless, the English giants are said to be keen on signing Martin, and have been closely observing him for quite some time. It was found that the young full-back was tied to a relatively low release clause of €30 million, and according to El Gol Digital, Mourinho is prepared to trigger the clause and seal the deal.
The 20-year-old definitely possesses an incredible potential to become one of the best in his position, and is being thoroughly monitored by the United scouts as of now. However, this pursuit unfortunately puts the future of Luke Shaw further up in the air.
