Manchester United could have found the perfect partner for Harry Maguire. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has watched his side struggle defensively in his first full season as manager at Old Trafford despite the £80m signing of England international Maguire last summer. 

The Norwegian has since stated that the club will look to take advantage of the financial uncertainty in football when the transfer window reopens, which could give them the advantage in their pursuit of Gabriel Magalhaes

The 22-year-old central defender has impressed in Ligue 1 since joining from Brazilian outfit Avai in 2017, and recently worked his way into the first-team after a string of loans.

The Daily Express have reported that United want to hijack a move to Napoli that includes his team-mate Victor Osimhen in a joint deal worth in the region of £100m. 

United fans have been left unconvinced by Victor Lindelof this season and injury problems have blighted the campaign of Eric Bailly while Phil Jones and Chris Smalling look likely to leave permanently this summer.
