Man Utd consider turning to Ajax fullback Nicolas Tagliafico

Manchester United are eyeing Ajax fullback Nicolas Tagliafico.

The Sun says United are monitoring Tagliafico - as a possible alternative to Alex Telles.

United are after a new left-back to add competition for Luke Shaw.

Tagliafico is free to leave Ajax this summer for around £23million.

The 28-year-old was on Leicester's shortlist as a replacement for Chelsea-bound Ben Chilwell, but they moved for Atalanta's Timothy Castagne instead.

Long-time suitors Atletico Madrid's financial problems look likely to scupper any possible move for the defender who has been capped 25 times for his country.
