The former Leganés man will offer the Manchester United boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.

According to the report, “Manchester United are tracking Real Valladolid fullback Ivan Fresneda. Football Insider says United are in the ‘chase’ to sign Fresneda, with Erik ten Hag keen to add another full-back to his squad. The Reds are keen on the 18-year-old defender after previously being linked with him in January. The teenager has caught the eye in La Liga this campaign, featuring on 12 occasions after breaking into the first team at the Estadio José Zorrilla.”

Real Valladolid are reluctant to let Fresneda go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.

It would take a huge offer from Manchester United to prise the 18-year-old right-back from Valladolid.

Good signing for Manchester United?

If Ivan Fresneda is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Manchester United.

Of course, the 18-year-old is not going to become a regular for Manchester United straightaway, but working under Ten Hag would make him a better player.

It will be interesting to see whether United will make their move during the summer transfer window.
