Manchester United is looking for a midfield anchor this summer

Manchester United fans may get exactly what they asked for after reports of the club's interest in a defensive midfielder.

Supporters have long identified the position as a position that requires investment, although there are general agreements that a far right has top priority.

United has only Nemanja Matic as the most natural defensive midfield, although Scott McTominay and Fred have also been more or less transformed into this role.

At the beginning of the Serbian season, the noise of a possible sale grew rapidly, especially since his contract was supposed to end in the summer.

However, Matic has reversed his form so well that the Red Devils have triggered a one-year extension clause in his contract.

Although fans have been happy with Matic lately, a long-term solution to the defensive midfield position is needed.

The experienced former Chelsea man was a much-needed presence in an otherwise young squad, but it's still difficult to see him beyond the next season.

Supporters have requested that Thomas Partey, Wilfred Ndidi and Declan Rice or Denis Zakaria be considered, and it is likely that Solskjaer already has one of them on his summer wish list.
