Manchester United are looking to continue adding new signings for the start of the season, with the manager looking to add depth in certain outfield positions to help him for the competitions in which the club will be involved. 

Much has already been said about the arrival of Mason Mount at Manchester United, as well as the possible arrival of goalkeeper André Onana to replace David de Gea, as well as Rasmus Hojlund in the attack, however, Erik Ten Hag is now thinking of focusing on the defensive part, incorporating a player who adapts to his system of play. 

One of the players that the Dutch manager has been targeting is FC Barcelona full-back Sergino Dest, since last summer United showed great interest in the American, but the Spanish club would send him on loan to AC Milan and that was the reason why he could never arrive at Old Trafford; but now the situation may arise again for Ten Hag. 

FC Barcelona would be very willing to let the winger go, if the right price is reached, which would be around 17 million euros, for his quality and potential, Manchester United would have no problem in signing Dest, however, the red devils are not the only team that would be in contention to sign the winger, Fulham and Crystal Palace would join the fight to see who can sign the American before the end of the summer. 

Sergino Dest's numbers

The 22-year-old full-back has shown that he has the quality to play for the biggest clubs in Europe, although he is not at his best and FC Barcelona are looking to sell him, Erik Ten Hag could take advantage of the situation and exploit Sergino's potential; during last season, the full-back was on loan at AC Milan where he could only play 14 games for less than 1,000 minutes.
