Old Trafford side chase Juventus star.
Man United have set their sights on Juventus defender Angelo Ogbonna according to the Metro.
Louis van Gaal has seen his defence lurch from poor showing to the next and is clearly keen to resolve the problem in January and a move for the Italian international could be a wise one to consider.
One does wonder if the 26 year old would be ready to leave a Juventus side who are dominating domestically, especially having only moved to the Turin side just over a year ago, or indeed whether the Serie A title holders would be open to offers for the former Torino man.
Van Gaal spent a great deal over the summer but even the additions of Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw hasn’t stemmed the tide at the back and the acquisition of an out and out central defender may be key to his side’s hopes of securing a top four finish.
Man United have conceded nine goals in their opening six Premier League fixtures.
