Is Bounou the answer to Man United's defensive problems?

Yassine Bounou, Sevilla's number one, has apparently surfaced as a Manchester United transfer target.

The Red Devils' future is unknown as current first-choice goalkeeper David de Gea is set to become a free agent in less than 18 months.

As a result, Manchester United are believed to be anxious to boost their shot-stopping ranks in the summer window, despite the presence of Dean Henderson in the wings.

According to The Mirror, Manchester United are reportedly monitoring the situation surrounding Sevilla's Bounou, who has a £25 million release clause in his Palanganas agreement, which expires in 2024.

However, the source says that Sevilla are willing to sign the 30-year-old to new terms with a £63 million release clause, while Atletico Madrid and Serie A teams are also interested.

Bounou has 12 clean sheets in 23 La Liga appearances for podium-chasing Sevilla this season and joined the club in the summer of 2020 for under £3.6 million from Girona.
