Dutch international, George Boateng has backed midfielder Thomas Partey to fit in at Manchester United should the Red Devils come for his service.

Despite strong interest from Arsenal, the Aston Villa second team coach is a big admire of the Ghanaian midfielder and thinks he can make United title contenders.

“If we look at Man United’s situation that is even more suitable,” he told Citi Tv’s The Tracker Show.

“Pogba in a three man midfield is a much better player as the 8 and Fernandes operating as the 10.

“Can they have someone like Thomas Partey to control and lead the midfield to allow Pogba and Fernandes to move forward,I think Man United will start playing to win the league,” he added

The 27-year old enjoyed his best season with the Rojiblancos as they finished third in La Liga, and are currently in the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League.

Partey made 35 La Liga appearances in the just ended season, scoring three goals.
