A hamstring injury limited Mukiele’s impact during his first season at PSG. Having returned to full fitness, though, it seems that the right-back finds himself playing second-fiddle to Achraf Hakimi.
United are desperate for an upgrade in that position. Ten Hag has never seemed truly convinced by Aaron Wan-Bissaka nor Diogo Dalot, who both have glaring limitations.
Mukiele’s form with Leipzig, which earned him his move to PSG 18 months ago, should be enough to prove that he can replace United’s current right-back options. The Red Devils may therefore choose to discuss a swap deal with the French champions.
