Manchester United seems poised to disrupt Arsenal’s potential deal for Radu Dragusin, as the Red Devils actively seek defensive reinforcements in the upcoming January transfer window. The defensive vulnerabilities that have plagued United, conceding 14 goals in five Champions League matches this season, have intensified their pursuit of the 21-year-old Romanian center-back.
Known for his defensive prowess and drawing comparisons to former United captain Nemanja Vidic, Dragusin initially emerged from Juventus’s youth system and currently plies his trade with Serie A side Genoa. Despite making his move to Genoa permanent for £5 million in the summer, Dragusin’s contract incorporates a release clause worth £26 million. Recent reports suggest that United is in advanced talks with the player, exploring the possibility of triggering this release clause to secure his services.
Dragusin’s agent, Florin Manea, has been actively engaged in discussions with various Premier League clubs, including Newcastle, Arsenal, and Tottenham, underscoring the heightened interest in the young and promising defender.
Here is the highlight video of Dragusin’s defensive skills.
This season he played in total 13 times for 1170 minutes for Serie A.
Radu Drăgușin scored 1 goal for Genoa. He procured one assist. He received no yellow cards and no red cards.
