Manchester United are reportedly interested in the potential transfer of Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi, though they could face competition from Real Madrid.
This is according to a report from Spanish outlet Fichajes, who claim that the Red Devils have an eye on both Zubimendi and his Sociedad teammate Takefusa Kubo.
Man Utd recently had scouts at the La Liga clash between Sociedad and Mallorca, while it’s also been reported by the Guardian that Sir Jim Ratcliffe highlighted Casemiro as a poor recent signing by the club.
This could all point towards United targeting Zubimendi as an upgrade in that area of the pitch, though it seems Real Madrid also like the player, who has impressed a lot in the Spanish top flight.
Los Blancos have some top young midfield players like Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni, but it’s also the case that ageing duo Toni Kroos and Luka Modric will soon need replacing.
Zubimendi could therefore be a perfect signing for United or Madrid, so it will be interesting to keep an eye on his situation and see what could happen to him next.
