Manchester United remain heavily linked with Jean-Clair Todibo and today we have an update coming from France.
A few days back, Spanish source, Sport, revealed the Red Devils are ready to pay a huge fee to sign the Les Bleus center half from Nice.
According to a story published by Nice-Matin today (news image provided below), Man Utd have placed their ‘pawns’ for Todibo.
The French source claim that the Old Trafford outfit were eager to lure the Ligue 1 star in the summer but opted to spend around 200 million euros to reinforce other areas of the squad.
It is stated that Jim Ratcliffe will bring in investment and his ‘arrival gift’ in mind is none other than Jean Clair-Todibo.
The 23-year-old has been one of the best defenders in the league this season and he wishes to stay with Nice for the entire season to boost his chances of selection for Euro 2024.
Nice-Matin claim he wants to know about the project at Old Trafford and ‘the name of the coach’ who could replace Erik ten Hag.
The French club values their prized asset at around 60 million euros (£51.5million) and if he continues to perform well, then other clubs could come forward to hire his services.
Man Utd have consistent concerns at the back. In your opinion, should they pay £51.5million to sign Todibo?
