Manchester United Eye RB Salzburg’s Oumar Solet

(Manchester, UK – July 9, 2023) In a move to bolster their defensive line, Manchester United are reportedly interested in securing the services of Oumar Solet from Austrian Bundesliga club RB Salzburg. This potential transfer is part of Erik ten Hag’s strategy to strengthen Manchester United’s squad ahead of the upcoming Premier League season and European competitions.

Solet, a 23-year-old centre-back, has caught the attention of the Manchester United management with his impressive performances in the Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League. The Red Devils are believed to be willing to invest around €15 million (£13 million/$16 million) to bring the French defender to Old Trafford, as Ten Hag seeks to add depth and quality to his backline.

“The pursuit of Solet comes as Manchester United look to build on their recent success in the Premier League and make a strong push for trophies in the 2023/24 campaign, including the UEFA Champions League and domestic cup competitions such as the EFL Cup and FA Cup.”

With the Euro 2024 qualifiers, the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, and the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations all on the horizon, the addition of Solet could provide a timely boost to Manchester United’s defensive capabilities as they look to compete at the highest level on multiple fronts.

As the transfer window continues to unfold, football fans will be keenly watching to see if Manchester United can secure the signature of Oumar Solet and further strengthen their squad under the guidance of Erik ten Hag.
