Manchester United is aiming for Castello Luceva (20, Olympique Lyonnais).
Luceva is from France and is Lyon’s sacred bone youth. He has grown up in the Lyon youth team since 2011 and signed his first professional team contract with Lyon in 2021. Luceva, who made her debut on the first team stage in the 2021-22 season, increased her playing time in earnest. He has made 20 appearances in the league this season, making him a clear starter.
Luceva is an elusive left-footed centre-back. His greatest strength is the build-up, and he boasts excellent passing ability. He also boasts a clean interception that is unusual for his young age. He is a 184 cm centre-back. His physicality is not strong, but he covers the back space with his speed.
While several teams are paying attention to Luceva, Manchester United is also starting to take the move. The British ‘Football Insider’ said on the 14th (Korean time), “Manchester United is considering signing Luceva. Manchester United manager Eric ten Haag has asked the team scout to pursue the signing of Lukeba.”
“Man Utd is preparing to renovate the defense line with a close eye on Luceva ahead of the transfer window next summer. Lyon has already valued Luceva, the French under-21 (U-21) national team player, at more than 30 million pounds (approximately 46 billion won),” he added.
Manchester United, who are showing signs of a revival under manager Ten Hag, are trying to organize their defense. Lisandro Martinez and Rafael Varane are sure to be the main defenders, but backups are insecure. Harry Maguire, the protagonist with the highest transfer fee ever, is likely to leave the team as he loses trust, and Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones are out of power.
Because of that, the central defender link continues. Kim Min-jae (Napoli) is also a target. Rumors of signing Kim Min-jae from Manchester United have been spreading since last year. It is a position that Kim Min-jae’s buyout, which will be activated from July 1 to 15, can be paid for 50 million euros (approximately 68.6 billion won). 먹튀검증
