Man Utd want to agree deal for £55m star, he could be another Lisandro Martinez

Manchester United should avoid an approach for Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi during the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils will likely sign a marquee centre-back with Raphael Varane expected to leave when his contract expires in July.

Jarrad Branthwaite and Gleison Bremer have been linked in recent months, but the Times claim that they are interested in Guehi.

The 23-year-old has been tipped to leave the Eagles this summer, and he could cost around £55 million.

Arsenal are also interested in the Englishman, who is aiming to return from a knee injury before the season concludes.

However, the club should avoid a move for Guehi after his recent setback.

Marc Guehi could end up as Lisandro Martinez 2.0

United have had bad luck with injuries in the current campaign. Lisandro Martinez has been a huge miss, having picked up three separate setbacks.

The Argentine missed the start of the season with a recurrence of his foot problem before picking up a knee injury on his return to action.

The World Cup winner suffered a calf issue on his comeback. He is anticipated to return before the FA Cup final against Manchester City.

United should keep this in mind when considering a deal for Guehi this summer.

Mason Mount is another example in the United squad. He missed most of the second half of last season at Chelsea due to a pelvic concern.

United splashed the cash to land his signature and it has proved costly. He has played only 693 minutes amid muscular injuries.

Guehi had missed just three games with injuries prior to his surgery, but the Red Devils need to avoid spending big on him after his long lay-off.
