United are on the hunt for another central defender to play alongside Maguire next season. Victor Lindelof was Solskjaer's preferred choice but poor defending in the Europa League defeat to Sevilla earlier this month has led the United manager to consider his options. Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly has been frequently linked with a move to the Premier League but his price tag has proven to be too high for clubs. But Upamecano is one of the most highly rated young defenders in Europe after a series of outstanding displays for Leipzig.
