Right footed though.

Right profile and ability would just prefer a proper lefty to push and take the mantel of Verts.

This I am assuming is from a piece entitled "Exclusive: how Man United can steal Samp defender from under Inter and Spurs noses" sooooooooooo.
He's Danish so maybe him and Eriksen are best friends... Get all the scandinavians... Berge, Andersen, Eriksen, anyone else?

Well, of course. I don't think anyone wants an average player, whatever foot.
Missed out on two good ones moving last summer in Diallo to Dortmund and Lenglet to Barca. Obviously we wouldn't have been able to convince Lenglet but two good lefties moved last summer. There just aren't a ton of them.

Diallo went for 28mil and Lenglet for 35mil. Its pure insanity we aren't doing any/more shopping in Germany and Spain.
It does seem weird. Those leagues are strong so you'd expect players to have a better chance of adapting. There must be loads of quality young players in those leagues, not just the biggest clubs, yet we only see the same names bandied around.

I'd like to see us do what Dortmund do. They don't have the money to buy megastars, but they buy quality youngsters and develop them. Like we have done with Alli and a few others, but on a greater scale.

Haven't bought a player from Germany since Son and no one from Spain since Soldado. Bizarre from countries that produce so much talent. If they aren't from England, France or Holland, we don't pay attention anymore it seems.
