Ten Hag has Man Utd join Gvardiol transfer battle

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is joining the battle for RB Leipzig defender Josko Gvardiol.

Sky Sports Deutschland says United are firmly in the race to acquire Gvardiol's services.

However, competition for the RB Leipzig defender's signature is likely to be fierce with Real Madrid and Barcelona also believed to be courting the youngster.

A move for Gvardiol would enable Ten Hag to continue rebuilding Manchester United's beleaguered defence.

The Dutchman snapped up Lisandro Martinez in the summer in the wake of Harry Maguire's poor form and Raphael Varane's injury struggles.

RBL hope to raise €80m from an auction for Gvardiol.
