Manchester United will surely address their right flank this summer. Even though Antonio Valencia has been excellent for the club this season he is reaching veteran status and was never a specialised right back anyway.
Latest reports suggest that Manchester United may make a move for a player from a Premier League rival.
British media outlet, The Sunday Express, reports:
Pochettino wanted to sign Shaw last summer but Manchester United knocked back their bid to take him on loan but are now willing to sell him.
And it could give them an edge in the tug of war with Pep Guardiola to sign England star Walker who wants to leave Tottenham this summer.
The 26-year-old England international has always had great potential but over the last few years his game has really come on and he now ticks all the boxes for a perfect, modern Premier League full-back.
Walker is an incredibly powerful player with great groundspeed and a wide man who loves to get forward.
His deliveries are really good and he puts in a deadly whipped cross from the right flank. He seems to have ironed out the inconsistencies in his game to become a really top defender and is now one of the most sought-after players in the Premier League.
Walker has now been at Tottneham for eight seasons since he moved from Sheffield United in 2008 and he’s played 222 games for Tottenham scoring four goals in the process. He’s more of a creator than a goalscorer and it looks as if he has at least another five years at the very top level of the game.
Let’s take a look at him in action. Manchester United fans: Is Walker the perfect addition to the first XI or is he still too accident prone for the top level of European competition?
