New Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal said it takes “only 24 hours” to sign a player after Manchester United’s opening day 2-1 home defeat to Swansea.
And, it looks like LVG is going to act quickly to shore up his backline ahead of Manchester United’s second Premier League match against Sunderland next Sunday.
Sky Sports have reported this evening, as can be seen on the Vine video above, that Roma defender Mehdi Benatia is on his way to Manchester to close a deal at Old Trafford.
Benatia was one of the stand out defenders in Serie A last season and is expected to cost at least 30 million pounds.
Comfortable playing in a back three or four, Benatia brings class and quality to Manchester United’s defence after a shaky start.
