Kunde, who was part of France’s roster at this summer’s European Championship, has established himself as one of the best young defenders in Europe since coming to Sevilla from Bordeaux in 2019.

A number of clubs, including Chelsea, Tottenham and Real Madrid, are all interested in Kunde, but United are ready to offer him the chance to move to Old Trafford.

Kounde’s potential and versatility, as he can also play as a right-back, fits the criteria for the young type of player Solskjaer wants to add to his roster at United.

Sevilla are reluctant to lose Koude, who is under contract until 2024, but they are bracing for offers for the 22-year-old before the end of the transfer window.
