For a club with a mythical following in excess of a billion people, Manchester United are still drawn to their longstanding fanbases in Ireland and Scandinavia.

Bailly might not be the answer but he is the blueprint, and United retain interest in Raphael Varane and Dayot Upamecano.



Before the money-spinning tours that prioritised finances over football, United's go-to pre-season destination was invariably Scandinavia or Ireland and, after years of indifference, United have pointedly acknowledged their following in the territories.



They have tagged on Scandinavian friendlies in three of their last four pre-season tours and nearly 52,000 fans clicked through the turnstiles of Dublin's Aviva Stadium to watch United beat Sampdoria in 2017.

They are unlikely to invest in an Irish or Scandinavian centre-back, though.

Maguire has started in 55 league games out of 55 since his £80million arrival.

Some Scandinavians are precious about criticism of Victor Lindelof, a dubious performer over the last 18 months.
