Castello Lukeba has been on Man United’s radar for a while now. And the Red Devils have scouted Lyon centre-back extensively. U21 France international has been an important first-team footballer for Les Gones this campaign, and the centre-back has shown that he has the potential to develop into a top-class footballer. Lukeba has been linked with Chelsea as well. Castello will be hoping to establish himself as a crucial figure for Lyon and the country in the coming campaigns. And it stays to be seen whether Man United can swoop in and secure his services. Man United have shown considerable improvement since the arrival of the Dutch coach. But they will need a deeper squad to compete on all fronts next campaign. The Red Devils will have to bring in defensive reinforcements at the end of the campaign, especially if they decide to cash in on some of their fringe footballers. The 20-year-old centre-back could prove to be a quality long-term investment from Man United. The French centre-back has all the attributes to succeed in English football, and the Dutch coach could help him fulfil his tremendous potential. The Dutch tactician helped several youngsters improve during his time at Ajax, and he could have a big impact on the development of the Frenchman as well. Castello Lukeba has been recommended to Erik ten Hag by one of their scouts, and the defender is set to cost in excess of £30m.
