Manchester United tracking Kilman but Wolves must set huge asking price

A reported by 90Min claims that Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has recommended Max Kilman to the club’s hierarchy.

Kilman is having an incredibly impressive season on the right of Bruno Lage’s back three, and recently impressed Rangnick up close in the 1-0 win at Old Trafford earlier this month.

Former Wolves man David Edwards thinks Kilman is having a better season than United captain Harry Maguire, and deserves to be in the next England squad.

It is hard to argue with that, and with that in mind, Wolves should set an absolutely huge asking price for Kilman.

In truth, that should be enough to put Rangnick off there and then, given the plan is for him to depart Old Trafford at the end of the season.

That means that Rangnick is unlikely to be handed a huge transfer budget this month anyway.

Ben White joined Arsenal for £50 million, on the back of two England caps and a good campaign at Brighton. Kilman is playing at least as well this season, for a side higher up the table.

That £50 million has to be a benchmark, and Wolves may even be looking at the £80 million United paid for Maguire with some interest, given Kilman currently looks the better player.

We also recently wrote that Kilman should not be tempted by reported interest from Tottenham, and United are currently below Spurs in the Premier League table.

Antonio Conte’s side also have two games in hand, and there is uncertainty at Old Trafford. Who is going to be the long-term manager? Is it a settled dressing room?

Of course it is a huge club but there is plenty there to make Kilman think twice and Conor Coady has realised his international ambitions at Molineux, so that concern does not hold much weight.
