Meet Powerful Young Defender Man Utd Will Sign For £25m

It may have been Manchester United's inability to score a goal that caused concern over the weekend but they are still looking to firm up their defence during the January window.

There could be good news on that front, as The Daily Star has reports that a deal for the Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte is 80% completed. The player has attracted interest from the likes of Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Spurs but it looks as if it will be United who will pay £25m for the 20-year old defender.

The centre back certainly looks like the sort of powerful presence that United have lacked since Nemanja Vidic left the club. Watch his highlights reel below.
