Manchester United wanted Jean-Clair Todibo in the summer but the French center half ended up staying with Nice.
Since then, the Red Devils have been consistently linked with the Les Bleus defender. Last month, reports indicated the Old Trafford club are prepared to accelerate deal to secure his signing using Ratcliffe links.
Now, as per journalist, Rudy Galetti, Man Utd are leading to seal the signing of Todibo, who is also on the radar of Chelsea.
The reporter has mentioned that Nice are willing to sell their prized asset in the current transfer window for a fee of around 50-60 million euros (£51.8million).
Just over a week ago, Ratcliff bought a 25% stake in Manchester United and it must be remembered that he is the owner of Nice.
So, Man Utd have the cards in their hands to lure Todibo, who has been fantastic for the Ligue 1 side in the current campaign.
So far, the 24-year-old center back has helped the French club keep nine clean sheets in fourteen league starts this term.
Nice have only let in 9 goals in the Ligue 1, on the other hand, Ten Hag’s men have already conceded 27 goals in the Premier League.
They were also ousted from the Champions League after conceding 15 goals in the group. So, the defense must be improved this month.
It must be remembered that first choice goalie, Andre Onana, is also unavailable due to his participation in the AFCON.
Have your say – Should Man Utd bid £51.8million to sign Todibo?
