According to reports ‘Man United urged to acquire £50m EPL defender Marc Guehi’ Manchester United has received a recommendation to consider acquiring Crystal Palace standout, Marc Guehi, who is seen as a potential key central defender at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag, grappling with defensive injuries this season, could address some of these concerns by bringing in Guehi, though facing stiff competition from rival clubs.

Since his move from Chelsea to Palace in 2021, Guehi has demonstrated his defensive prowess in the Premier League, attracting interest from several top-tier teams.
Arsenal, Tottenham, and Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea were among the clubs keen on the 23-year-old during the summer, though they were quoted a fee around £50 million. Guehi chose to remain at Selhurst Park.
Manchester United is once again in the market for a defender, with a shortlist of potential targets including Jean-Clair Todibo, Antonio Silva, Edmond Tapsoba, and Goncalo Inacio, as revealed by Fabrizio Romano. While Guehi was not initially on this list, there is a growing consensus within the club to seriously consider the young defender.
Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has been impressed with Crystal Palace’s central defensive duo, but he emphasizes that Guehi should be their primary focus, asserting that Guehi would be the club’s best central defender if they invest in signing the English international.
Parker stated, “From Manchester United’s perspective, I think I would look at Marc Guehi, the center-back who partners with Joachim Andersen. He is a fantastic central defender, and I would prioritize Guehi over Andersen, especially considering his age.”
“Guehi is only 23 years old and already an England international. If Manchester United were to secure Guehi’s signature, he would undoubtedly be the best central defender at the club.
I believe Martinez is excellent, but Guehi demonstrates more elegance in ball control. They could form a formidable central defensive partnership. Guehi is incredibly astute, and adding him to the squad would be remarkable.
I would strongly advise Manchester United to explore the option of recruiting him from Crystal Palace.”
