Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are willing to sale Brazilian defender Miranda as they have a replacement ready and Manchester United are ready to snap this opportunity by making an offer worth 20 million pounds for the player in July.
Miranda had formed an excellent partnership with Diego Godin at the heart of Atletico Madrid’s defence. The duo was considered as inseparable until the injury to Miranda last year. The injury to the Brazilian forced coach Diego Simeone to play Jose Maria Gimenez alongside Diego Godin.
The young Jose Maria Gimenez has impressed everybody with his mature displays for Atletico Madrid this season and coach Diego Simeone has some big plans for the young defender. Now, this preference of coach Diego Simeone for the youngster has put the future of Miranda in doubt and Manchester United are ready to bank on this opportunity.
Manchester United are desperately looking for some defensive enforcements in the summer as the likes of Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling have failed to impress coach Louis van Gaal so far.
Almost all the defenders of Manchester United are troubled with injury concerns this season and this has forced Louis van Gaal to alter his defensive formation on a regular basis.
The management of Manchester United wants to avoid this scenario next season as they have decided to completely change the face of their back line in the summer transfer window.
Host of big names are being linked with a summer move to the Old Trafford but the duo of Mats Hummels and Miranda on top of coach Louis van Gaal’s wish list.
Meanwhile, reports coming from England and Spain have also confirmed the willingness of Atletico Madrid to sale, and readiness of Manchester United to sign, Miranda in July.
The report of Mundo Deportivo has claimed that the Brazilian powerhouse will be shown the door at the Vicente Calderon following the rise of youngster Jose Maria Gimenez alongside fellow Uruguayan Diego Godin in the heart of defence. And United are ready to take advantage by completing a £20m deal, with Louis van Gaal keen to add Miranda to his Red Devils squad.
Atletico Madrid have big plans for summer transfer window as they want to invest in the areas of necessity. The Roiblancos are well stocked in the area of defense and they are ready to use the money received from the sale of Miranda to Manchester United to fill the other areas of concern.
