Premier League giants Manchester United are getting ready to launch a £15 million bid for Hull City’s Andrew Robertson in the summer as the Red Devils look to strengthen their defence.

The 22 year-old has been an ever-present for the Tigers this term helping his side sit seven points inside of the play-offs with just six games left to play.

Manchester United’s problems at the back have been well-documented this season and with first-choice left-back Luke Shaw still recovering from injury, youth players such as Fosu-Mensah have been thrust into action despite a lack of experience.

Robertson, who started his career with Queen’s Park in Scotland, joined Hull back in 2014 for a fee of £2.85 million and has gone on to make over 60 appearances for the Tigers, including 24 in the Premier League last season.

After a season with Queen’s Park, Robertson was snapped up by Dundee United and would go on to win the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year Award for his performances in the 2013-14 season, as well as being named as part of the PFA Scotland Team of the Year.

Capped nine times at international level by Scotland, it is likely a move would depend on whether or not the Tigers can achieve promotion to the Premier League come the end of the season.
