According to TalkSport, David Moyes is monitoring Federico Fazio from Sevilla. The Argentine defender has played remarkable games this season, his form is stellar, and he is regarded as one of the best central defenders in Spain at the moment.
Fazio is a 27-year-old central defender, whose abilities stretch to playing in the defensive midfielder spot. Because of his commanding physical presence and height (a staggering 195cm), Moyes regards him as a potential replacement for captain Nemanja Vidic, who will transfer to Inter Milan at the end of the season.
Fazio is one of the most wanted players in the Europe at the moment, but most of the interested parties don’t want to pay him 10 million euro, which is the minimum fee release clause installed into his contract. Manchester United is willing to pay that price, and secure his signature before the World Cup in Brasil, because Fazio has a solid chance to break into the Argentine squad for and play this most prestigious of tournaments.
With his characteristic style of play and a great combination of strength and speed, he should fit in well into United squad. His playing characteristics are similar to the ones that Nemanja Vidic had in his prime, and with other reported Moyes’ targets, it is clear that the United manager wants to snag two suitable players and make them into a pair which could be a copy of the very successful duo Vidic-Ferdinand.
