Manchester United secured a crucial Champions League victory on Tuesday, beating FC Copenhagen 1-0. 

Defender Harry Maguire put the Red Devils ahead in the second-half, before goalkeeper Andre Onana saved a penalty deep into added time to ensure the victory for the hosts.

Erik ten Hag’s side had lost their opening two games in the group stage – against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray – and currently sit third in Group A.

Maguire, who scored United’s only goal against their Danish opponents last time out, has endured a difficult 18 months at Old Trafford.

The England international had fallen out of favour after an inconsistent run of form, but he was awarded the man of the match award in United’s last Premier League outing and impressed once again on Tuesday.

Despite Maguire’s improvement, it appears that the Red Devils are still searching for possible defensive transfer targets.

Le Normand has emerged as a target for both Liverpool and Manchester United

As per TeamTalk, both United and Liverpool are interested in Real Sociedad centre-back Robin Le Normand.

The report claims that scouts from both Premier League clubs have taken note of the defender during recent scouting trips across Europe.

Le Normand, 26, joined La Liga side Sociedad from French club Brest back in 2016 and has since established himself as a regular for the club.

In total he has made 190 appearances across all competitions, including 147 in the Spanish top flight.

He has been capped six times by Spain at senior level, having made his debut earlier this year.

The Spaniard is currently contracted to Sociedad until 2026, and it has been reported that his current deal includes a release clause set at around £43.6 million.

A number of Liverpool’s central defenders, including Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate, have struggled with injuries in recent seasons, and those in charge of the club may therefore be keen to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s options in defence.
