Old Trafford side to make offer for Atletico Madrid star.
Man United are lining up a £20m bid for Atletico Madrid centre-back Miranda according to TuttoMercato.
Louis van Gaal is in need of a strong defensive leader and Brazilian international Miranda may well be an ideal option to consider when the transfer window re-opens.
The Old Trafford side will look to the 30 year old to provide some quality at the back having been forced at times to field youngsters Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett.
Phil Jones has struggled with injuries whilst Jonny Evans has been poor when called upon with new signing Marcos Rojo not impressing since his summer move to the club.
Miranda played a pivotal role in his side’s La Liga triumph last term as well as aiding them in to their run to the Champions League final, making a total of 52 starts in all competitions in 2013/14.
