The battle for Marc Guéhi is between Liverpool and Manchester United...This summer's point of contention Transfers

Liverpool has been looking to strengthen its center backs since last summer’s transfer market. With 32-year-old defender Joel Matip set to leave the club this June and Virgil van Dijk soon to turn 33, a generational change in the center back group is inevitable.

Although the team has a number of calculable defenders, including Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, and Jarell Quansah, securing a new center back is a high priority for the upcoming double season, as well as for the long and intense season to come.

According to The Telegraph, Liverpool still has Crystal Palace defender Marc Guéhi, who has been interested in the club for some time, on its list and could be in a battle with Manchester United this summer.

Dan Ashworth, the current Newcastle sport director, who is expected to become the sporting director at Manchester United, will revive interest in the 23-year-old defender, who has played over “100” games for the London club. It is possible that this may be the case. The reason behind this is related to the fact that he is a fan of the player.

The England defender joined Crystal Palace from Chelsea in the summer of 2021, but his old club has not signed any buy-back options, and a move to a club that is likely to fail to secure Champions League qualification is unlikely.

Oliver Glasner, who was appointed to the same leadership position after Roy Hodgson retired, will be left scratching his head at the end of the season.
