Manchester United keen on Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back Max Kilman ahead of summer rebuild

Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back Max Kilman is on the radar of Manchester United, according to the Times.

The Old Trafford club have sent staff to watch the 26-year-old in action more than once and will make a final decision over the next few weeks.

Kilman has impressed Man United, while Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has also praised him for his quality after a game, but Wolves are keen to retain his services.

The Englishman has four years left on his current contract after he recently signed an extension, and it would take a big bid to land him as Napoli had an offer of £30 million rejected.

There has been no contact between the two clubs over a potential transfer, but Kilman could be tempted to join the Red Devils if they come calling as Sir Jim Ratcliffe bids to make them a force to be reckoned with again.

Man United have made signing a defender one of their top priorities this summer as Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans could be leaving at the end of the campaign, while Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire have both struggled with injuries this term.

Having featured in every minute of the campaign, Kilman would be perfect for the Red Devils having proven his reliability and durability.

The Wolves star is also comfortable playing out from the back and always willing to put his body on the line.

Man United need better centre-backs if they want to start challenging for major silverware, and landing Kilman could be huge considering his quality.
