Manchester United have to reinforce their backline after their dismal performance in the defeat against Tottenham Hostpur.

The Red Devils have Benjamin Pavard in sights but the Bayern star is close to joining Italian giants, Inter Milan, instead.

Transfer: Deal close – Man Utd to secure £30,000 a week star signing

So, once again, the name of Jean-Clair Todibo is in the focus.

As per today’s version of Mundo Deportivo (news image provided below), Barcelona are paying attention to four former players, who if sold will bring in cash in the current transfer window.

Todibo made five senior appearances for the Catalan giants before sealing a permanent move to Nice, where he excelled big time in the last campaign.

The renowned Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd are considering paying the French club the £25.6m (30 million euros) fee they are asking for to secure the signing.

Barcelona will receive 20 percent of the total fee and are hoping to get around 8 million euros.

MD claim even French champions, Paris Saint-Germain are looking to meet the £25.6m asking fee to lure the 23-year-old central defender before the transfer deadline ends next week.

Apart from Todibo, Barca are observing the situation of ex players like Juan Miranda (40 percent), Coutinho (50 percent) and Akieme (10 percent) who are linked with moves away from their respective clubs.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag has not been able to get rid of Harry Maguire as yet. Regardless of his move, the Dutch manager must secure a solid defender to improve the squad.

In your view, should Man Utd pay £25.6m to sign Jean-Clair Todibo?
