Manchester United are gearing up for a busy summer in the transfer window, with a replacement for Patrice Evra one of the areas of concern.
Although the Old Trafford side have been linked with a multitude of left-backs, a new one can be added to the list.
But, what do we know about Bernat?
- 21-year-old Bernat is a product of the Valencia youth academy and has been a virtual mainstay for the Mestalla outfit this season, starting 15 La Liga games.
- The versatile left-footer started out his career as a left winger, but has been predominantly used as a full-back over the last year.
- Bernat has represented his nation at various youth grades from under-16 level through to under-21. He was part of the squad that won the under-19 European Championships in 2012, while he has played for the under-21’s on six occasions.
- The attack-minded defender is renowned for his turn of pace and has consistently proven himself as a excellent crosser of the ball.
- With Valencia’s financial problems, Bernat is expected to be widely available and is rated at around the £6 million mark.
