Man United set to rival Liverpool for Brighton & Hove Albion’s Ben White

Manchester United reportedly intend to make an approach for Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White in 2021.

After starring on loan at Leeds United in the Championship, White has since established himself as a regular starter at the Amex Stadium.

Despite having recently extended his contract until 2024, the 23-year-old remains on the radar of several Premier League clubs, including Liverpool.

According to Manchester Evening News, United have identified the versatile Englishman as one of their priority defensive targets.

The report suggests that White features on a shortlist of players which also includes RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano and Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.

Brighton will demand well in excess of £30m if any clubs express an interest in one of the next two transfer windows.
