Red Devils identify top centre-back target for January.
Manchester United look set to step up their efforts to sign Atletico Madrid defender and Chelsea target Miranda this January, according to the Daily Star.
The Brazilian international has been one of La Liga’s best defenders for some time now, helping Atletico to a surprise title win last season as well as on a superb run to the Champi0ns League final.
Miranda has since been linked with an exit several times, with top clubs all around Europe looking to snap him up as he may be available for a fee in the region of £20m.
United now look ready to meet that asking price in the next transfer window, with Louis van Gaal desperate to make a singing to solve his side’s defensive woes this season.
