Manchester United are in advanced talks to sign Kevin Mbabu from Fulham in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Tuttomercatoweb who claim that Man United boss Erik ten Hag is in prime posiiton to bring the 27-year-old to Old Trafford, ahead of Italian side Monza.
Manchester United closing in on Kevin Mbabu
TMW claim that in the last few hours, Mbabu’s potential transfer to United from Fulham is in the ‘advanced negotiation’ stage.
The 22-capped Switzerland only moved to the Premier League in the summer of 2022 when he joined Fulham from Wolfsburg. He has only made six league appearances for the Cottagers though, with five of them coming off the bench.
Now, I feel as though this is somewhat of a strange signing. Mbabu hasn’t been playing regularly for Fulham, so is he good enough for United? That really is debatable.
The Swiss right-back does have the attributes needed to succeed in England though. He’s 6ft tall, with a really stocky build and is strong as an ox. The Fulham man possesses really impressive pace and is an attacking full-back in every sense – something that Ten Hag is desperate for.
There is no mention of what the fee will be. If it’s a reasonable price though, Kevin Mbabu may end up being a decent signing for Manchester United. The United fans may well have to trust Ten Hag with this one it seems. And who knows, the Swiss defender might just find a new level entirely if he does indeed move to Old Trafford
