Man Utd face transfer battle with Bayern Munich after 'making approaches' to sign Monaco defender Axel Disasi | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED have made an approach to sign Axel Disasi from Monaco, according to reports.

The Red Devils want to further strengthen their back line, with young defender Disasi fitting the bill.

The 24-year-old was in action for France at the World Cup in Qatar, picking up a runners-up medal.

Didier Deschamps opted to field him at right-back for Les Bleus, although Disasi is naturally a centre-half by trade.

According to Telefoot, the Red Devils have launched an initial approach to sign Disasi from Monaco.

Having lost Disasi's centre-back partner Benoit Badiashile to Chelsea for £35million earlier this month, the Ligue 1 side will not want to lose a second defender on the cheap.

Monaco will reportedly demand north of £44m for Disasi's signature.

And United will face strong competition to complete a deal.

Bayern Munich are also in the race, having made Disasi a "priority target".

The Bundesliga giants could look to partner him with French international team-mate Dayot Upamecano.

Man United, meanwhile, have already bolstered their back line since Erik ten Hag's arrival.

They shelled out £55m to sign Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.

While they also spent £13m on Tyrell Malacia.

Recruiting another defender could cast further doubt over skipper Harry Maguire's Man United future.

The Red Devils recently turned down a loan offer from West Ham for the England man.
