United have been advised to take a player who would be Maguire`s perfect partner


Former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas has called on Manchester United to recruit defender Jan Vertonghen this summer, naming him the best free defender on the market. After the 1:1 draw with Crystal Palace in the last match of the Premier League, the Belgian confirmed that he left the spurs and left as a free agent. Vertonghen spent 8 years with the Londoners, having 232 games in the English elite. With no longer a contract with Tottenham, he aroused the interest of a number of clubs, including Manchester City and Everton. However, according to Jenas, United should join the race to sign the defender, as he would be a perfect partner for Harry Maguire.

I constantly praise him everywhere and I apologize, but Jan Vertonghen as a free transfer is the best central defender on the market. If you can move Harry Maguire to the right of the central pair of central defenders and take a defender who can really handle the ball on the left, this slight dynamic can completely change things for them, and Vertonghen is free. At Manchester United they know what they are doing, they have a plan, but defensively they are really far away. I know how good he is. I get upset when I see him standing on the bench every week. I`ve played with it, I`ve watched it and now that it`s free, it just makes sense, Jenas told BBC Radio 5. The Red Devils are still looking for Maguire`s permanent partner in the center of defense, with Old Trafford believed to have looked to Napoli`s Calidou Coulibaly and Inter Milan`s Milan Skrinyar.

The 33-year-old Vertonghen has played in 30 games this season in all competitions.
