Manchester United interested in Leeds United centre-back Robin Koch

Manchester United are interested in signing Leeds United centre-back Robin Koch, reports Sky Sport Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg.

The Red Devils have held talks to sign the Germany international, but nothing has advanced yet.

Leeds are set to lose most of their top players after getting relegated, and Koch is expected to leave.

The 26-year-old has been with the Elland Road club since 2020, making 77 appearances.

Man United want to bolster their options at the back and have been linked with Napoli ace Kim Min-jae.

However, they have contingency plans in place if a move for the South Korean international falls through.

Koch has impressed since joining Leeds and could be a quality addition to the Red Devils’ defence.

Man United will also have the chance to sign the former SC Freiburg star for an affordable fee.

Koch is a ball-playing centre-back who has also been deployed in midfield.

His versatility would come in handy under Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag, and he could be the perfect cover for Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane.

Man United are keeping tabs on other centre-backs apart from Koch, with AS Monaco star Axel Disasi also on their radar.

The Old Trafford club are ready to part with Harry Maguire this summer, and the England international is not short of suitors.

Aston Villa and Newcastle United are keen on him, and West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked.

A replacement is needed if he leaves, and Koch, who will earn less and can potentially challenge Varane and Martinez, could be perfect for the squad.
