Manchester United's defence has been one of the many problems that José Mourinho has had to face this season.
After a summer transfer window that saw United fail to land his top targets and a late move for Atlético Madrid's Diego Godín fall apart, fans can now understand why the Special One was so keen to strengthen his back-four options.
Mourinho is not giving up his hopes for a new defender, though.
According to Marca (viaSport Witness), United have made a big move for Atlético's Lucas Hernández.
In fact, the club has made a "dizzying offer" for the 22-year-old French defender, who could see his wages double with a transfer to Old Trafford.
If Mourinho is eager to land the World-Cup winning star, who can operate as a full-back or centre-back, then United might need to match his reported €80m release clause.
Hernández made his debut for Madrid in 2014 and has made over 50 appearances for the club.
According to101 Great Goals, he is under contract with Atlético until 2024.
@ManUtddefence have been a total shambles. Does Mourinho think McTominay is a better centre-half than Bailley? Or is he trying to show he doesn't have the defenders he needs? Gettting one up on Woodward at team's expense?#MUTV#MUNNEW
@ManUtdis slowly becoming Wenger's Arsenal. Not challenging the premier league trophy but aiming top 4 finish. Great comeback but a poor first half display at home. United must really improve their defence. Every game simply reminds Fergie can't be replaced.#MUNNEW
This is absolutely horrendous by Manchester United. Yes the defence is average at best, but the team shouldn't be performing this badly on such a consistent basis. Change is overdue and desperately needed. No more excuses.#MUNNEW#MUFC:red_circle::soccer:
