Reports stemming from Spain have credited Manchester United with an interest in Getafe midfielder, Mauro Arambarri.
Who is Arambarri?
Mauro Arambarri, after spending a year on loan in Spain, joined Getafe on a permanent basis in July of 2018.
Getafe are understood to have paid Uruguayan outfit Boston River just shy of £2m for his services.
And the 25-year-old has since established himself as a regular for the Spanish outfit, notching 141 appearances in all competitions, across which he has scored six and assisted six.
Arambarri has enjoyed a particularly impressive 2020/21 campaign, which also saw the midfielder earn his first caps for Uruguay at the back end of last year.
Man United linked with Arambarri
And now, Arambarri, who is contracted to Getafe until 2023, appears to be attracting interest from some top sides.
Spanish outlet AS claim that Atletico Madrid are expressing an interest in the midfielder.
However, the same report adds that the club to have shown the most concrete interest in Arambarri are Manchester United.
It is suggested that representatives of the Red Devils have already contacted the South American’s ‘environment’ to convey their interest.
In terms of a potential fee for Arambarri, AS point towards a release clause of €25m.
But do Man United actually need to be targeting the Getafe star?
His natural position sees Arambarri take up something of a box-to-box role, allowing him to contribute at both ends of the pitch.
However, when looking at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, a more out-and-out defensive midfielder looks a more logical addition. This comes with players such as Fred, Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek generally tasked with orthodox midfield roles at Old Trafford.
