United have scouted PL centre-back numerous times ahead of potential summer swoop to kickstart rebuild

Manchester United have reportedly shortlisted Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Max Kilman to bolster Erik ten Hag’s backline this summer, as per The Times. The 26-year-old was the subject of a £30 million bid from Napoli last year, though this was rebuffed by the East Midlands outfit and he subsequently penned a new five-year deal. Defensive reinforcements will be vital for United after this season’s debilitating injury crisis saw an unprecedented 53 recorded cases of fitness complaints/illness, all of which led to the affected players missing at least one match. The latest additions were Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez. The Argentine, in particular, has suffered torrid luck on the injury front this season; after just returning from his third layoff in 12 months against Brentford, it was announced yesterday that he had sustained a calf strain in training and would be sidelined for at least a month.
