According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Manchester United have launched an enquiry over the availability of Anderlecht midfielder Leander Dendoncker.
Manchester United completed the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea for a fee of around £40million and the signing of the Serbian international means that the Red Devils’ spending spree this summer has exceed well over £150million.
While United’s spending this summer has been lavish to say the least, one has to state that manager Jose Mourinho has now assembled a squad which is more than capable of challenging for the Premier League title during the upcoming campaign.
It remains to be seen as to whether Mourinho will be looking to add more players to his squad before the end of the summer transfer window but unsurprisingly, the Red Devils continue to be linked with a host of names.
Now according to reports from the Daily Mirror, it has been claimed that United are interested in acquiring the services of Leander Dendoncker and that the Red Devils have already placed an enquiry to find out the availability of the 22-year-old.
Dendoncker is a talented young defensive midfielder who has managed to impress since breaking into the Anderlecht first team back in the summer of 2013 and the towering youngster has been touted by many to enjoy a very successful career at the top.
Now a regular for the Belgium national team, Dendoncker has unsurprisingly attracted the interest from a host of top clubs and Mourinho is believed to be one of the many managers monitoring the young man’s progress.
Dendoncker is said to have caught the eye of Mourinho during Anderlecht’s Europa League quarter-final clash against United last season, where he managed to find the back of the net in the first leg and the Red Devils can now allegedly sign the 6ft 2in powerhouse somewhere between £22million and £31million.
Considering that United have spent so much on signing Matic, bringing in another defensive midfielder would be a strange move indeed but considering Dendoncker’s young age, he could well prove to be a decent signing for the fallen Premier League giants.
