REPORTS: Manchester United eye transfer move for 19-year-old right-back next year

Manchester United football club are so keen on lifting their first trophy under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and have completed the signings of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo to bolster their squad.

And even with those additions, the Old Trafford side have endured a mixed start to the 2021/2022 season so far and are currently sitted in 4th position on the Premier League table.

The Red Devils have racked up 14 points from their first seven Premier League matches so far, scoring 14 goals and conceding six goals in total.

And even with that, it is believed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not satisfied with his defensive options and he is interested in signing Rangers defender Nathan Patterson when the transfer window opens.

The 19-year-old Scotland International, who joined Rangers in 2009 before making his professional debut in January 2020 has been an influential member of the first-team squad ever since.

The young right-back had an impressive 2020/2021 season where he scored two goals in 14 appearances in all competitions for the Scottish side.

Nathan Patterson has also started the ongoing 2021/2022 season on a strong note as well, recording one assist in 4 appearances for Rangers so far.

His impressive displays in defence has caught the attention of clubs across Europe and according to reports from The Sun, Manchester United are eyeing a move for him.

It is believed that the Old Trafford are interested in signing Nathan Patterson for £10million in order to provide the needed competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka in that right-back position.

That said, it remains to be seen if reigning Scottish Champions Rangers will be interested in offloading the young right-back when the transfer window opens in the new year.
