Man Utd consider loan transfer for Dan-Axel Zagadou with Borussia Dortmund defender available for free in summer

FootMercato Report United are looking to sign the giant defender temporarily this month ahead of a permanent deal at the end of the season.

Interim boss Ralf Rangnick is weighing his options on defense after a series of injuries to his team.

Skipper Harry Maguire missed the 1-0 loss to Wolves after receiving a blow.

Eric Bailly polished his hamstrings playing against Burnley last week and Victor Lindelof is trying to shake off the effects of Covid.

Rangnick was forced to recall Phil Jones for his first senior game since January 2020 for Wolves’ lackluster loss.

United were aiming for a possible deal with Zagadou last year during the reign of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And the France U21 star was also wanted by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta before moving to Ben White from Brighton.

Zagadou has played 13 times for Dortmund this season after recovering from a lengthy knee injury.

And Rangnick believes he could do a good job for United at the back alongside compatriot Raphael Varane.

But Dortmund are also keen to keep Zagadou in Germany and have opened talks on a contract extension.
