According to a report in the Sun today, Manchester United are chasing Sevilla's midfield mouthful Grzegorz Krychowiak. The Polish international has been highly rated for a while, and has been pretty strongly linked with a move to Arsenal in the past. However, thanks to Arsène Wenger's strange aversion to defensive midfielders, Krychowiak's still on the market, and the Sun's Mike McGrath claims that United could snap him up for around £30 million.
We must admit, we've not seen too much of Krychowiak, but it's clear that Wayne Rooney is not a viable option in midfield for the long term. It'd be good to get in a replacement. At 26, Krychowiak would bring the experience that a player like Renato Sanches (soon on his way to Bayern Munich) could not, and having been a key cog in Unai Emery's successful Sevilla side for a few seasons, he must be doing something right.
Anyone who's a little bit more enlightened on Krychowiak's merits, fill us in via the comments section below.
