Man Utd in talks with Real Betis over 22-year-old left-back Junior Firpo

Solskjaer, 46, is looking to bring in younger players and as SunSport revealed this week, among them are Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Swansea winger Dan James.

United's defensive shortcomings have been well documented and the Norwegian manager is looking to rectify this.

And according to Spanish paper AS, Firpo could well be on his way out of Betis.

The report suggests United have been in talks to sign the defender and are willing to pay as much as £26.4million to sign him.

Despite his supposed chequered injury record, Firpo has also attracted significant interest from Real Madrid.

Firpo – who will be in action at the European Under-21 Championships next month – is contracted with Betis until 2023.

He said: "We’re going to sit down and go through all the plans.

“And we’ll be ready when 1 July comes. There will be no excuses."
