“United will decide on a centre-back again signing dependent on prospects, but players like Todibo, an vital participant for Wonderful … it’s not easy to signal these players in the January window, so it could possibly have to wait until eventually the summertime, but the plan is to convey in an important centre-back again in 2024.”
