Almost Done – Man United Close to $38m Star Signing

Aymeric Laporte BilbaoManchester United have long been in search of a quality central defender and it seems that the Red Devils are now close to signing one in the winter window.
Louis van Gaal wasted most of his time during the summer window trying to secure Mats Hummels from Borussia Dortmund.
In the end, United could only lure Argentine star Marcos Rojo for CB position when he was mainly vital for his country while playing left back.
Failure to sign a world class central defender who could lead the line has haunted Manchester United and Van Gaal has earned the same number of points after 21 games as Moyes did.
According to reports, Manchester United are close to signing $38m Atheltic Bilbao star Aymeric Laporte to solve the defensive concerns.
Laporte broke on to the scene last season for the Spanish club, featured in no less than 35 league games at the age of 19 for Bilbao and helped them qualify for the Champions League.
United did secure midfielder signing from Bilbao in summer in the form of Ander Herrera and as per the provided Express link, the deal to sign Laporte from Athletic Bilbao is 80 percent done.
The youngster has already played 81 games for Bilbao and has enough experience in his locker to step up and move to Old Trafford.
However, is the 20 year old French man the one to lead a group of experienced defenders at Manchester United? only time will tell.
