Former Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre has urged the club to consider a summer move for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde.

Manchester United are set to back the next permanent manager heavily in the next transfer window, with the signing of a new centre-back a possibility at the end of the season.

“You’ve got to consider Jules Kounde, for sure. That could be one to be added to the list.” Silvestre told the Manchester Evening News as part of an interview in association with bettingexpert.

“Everybody is linked with United, all the top players and top defenders are linked. I think Jules Kounde should be high up on the list.”
