West Ham United ready to cash in on Manchester United target Issa Diop
It will come as a boost for United, who have long been linked with the 23-year-old defender. Diop joined the Hammers in 2018 and has since made 73 appearances for the club. During this time, he has scored five goals.
This is especially true when it comes to the centre-back pairing. Maguire’s lack of pace and speed on the turn has seen him get caught out numerous times.
Bringing in a new pacy centre-back is on the club’s agenda. Diop could be the answer if the club decides to pursue him.
West Ham were initially reluctant to part ways with their star defender. However, they have now had a change of heart.
Diop is also keen on a move. He believes it will help him compete for a spot in the French national team. United will, however, face competition from two Premier League sides, one of them being Chelsea.
