Manchester United are keeping tabs on the Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White.

According to the Sun, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are also monitoring White, who Brighton value at around £35 million.

The Seagulls turned down three offers from Leeds United for White last summer.

The 23-year-old spent the previous campaign on loan at Elland Road, establishing himself as a key player for Marcelo Bielsa.

The Argentine manager wanted to sign him permanently at the start of this season, but Brighton refused to sell him.

White has been a regular starter for Graham Potters’ side this term, and he undoubtedly has the talent to play for a bigger club in future.

Manchester United defender Harry Maguire recently urged the club to sign an English speaking centre-back, and White could be an excellent fit.

White has still to reach his peak and could give his best years to the Old Trafford outfit if they manage to snap him up this summer.

The reported fee seems reasonable for a player of his talent. English players often come with a premium price tag, and White has the ability to justify the reported £35m valuation.
