Over the weekend, popular English newspaper The Daily Mirror published a story on its official website stating that 29-year old centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos is admired by Manchester United. With head coach Jose Mourinho eager to strength his defence, he has watched the Greek in action for Borussia Dortmund during recent weeks and is keen on signing him in the summer.
Possessing a price tag of around 22 million euros, Sokratis is a realistic target for Manchester United. The defender has also been linked with a move to London club Chelsea, but Manchester United are first in the queue and Mourinho is a huge fan of the Greek’s talents. Sokratis has spent the past five years with Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga, making over 100 appearances and scoring seven league goals.
