Manchester United join Fenerbahce in the race to sign Dante

Manchester United have set their sights on Bayern Munich’s centre-back Dante according to the Mirror.

Fenerbahce are also understood to be talks with the 31-year-old defender. The Turkish sports show ‘Ceza Sahasi’ recently stated that the Brazilian international was in talks with Fenerbahce and that he will replace an out-going Bruno Alves next season.

Dante has recently lost his place in the Bayern staring line-up to Benatia and Jerome Boateng. The Brazilian international has two years remaining on his contract with the Bundesliga giants.

United have turned their attention towards Dante after failing to land Mats Hummels from Borussia Dortmund.

Dante was recently heavily criticised by the German football legend Franz Beckenbauer.

“Well, Dante. He just needs to stop the ball. Were he from Iceland, or from the north pole, then I would say he still had his ski boots on. But like that, terrible,” Beckenbauer told Sky following Bayerns 3-1 defeat at the hands of Porto in the UEFA Champions League last month.

The 31-year-old has made 39 appearances for Bayern Munich in all competitions this season and has 14 international caps with Brazil.
