Man United have ‘concrete interest’ in Ligue 1 pair Ndombele & Meunier

As per a report from French outlet L’Equipe, Premier League giants Manchester United are keen on the signings of both Tanguy Ndombele and Thomas Meunier.

Lyon powerhouse

Ndombele, a 22-year-old midfielder, has long been regarded as one of the finest young talents in France.

The all-action Lyon standout possesses all of the attributes of a modern midfielder, with his abilities both in and out of possession having seen some of Europe’s top clubs earmark Ndombele as a priority addition.

To this point, the Guingamp youth product, who, despite the presence of the likes of Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi, N’Golo Kante and more, has already racked up 4 caps for France, has been heavily-linked with moves to the likes Manchester City, Tottenham, Juventus and Real Madrid.

And, as per the aforementioned report from L’Equipe, another outfit, in the form of Manchester United, are said to hold a serious interest in securing Ndombele’s services this summer.

The Red Devils will likely require reinforcements in the middle of the park come the end of the season, with Ander Herrera having reportedly agreed a lucrative pre-contract deal with Ligue 1 giants PSG.

PSG full-back

Ndombele, though, is not the only addition United are rumoured to be eyeing from the French top-flight.

L’Equipe also add that PSG stopper Thomas Meunier is viewed as a potential addition by the Red Devils’ board.

Right-back Meunier, renowned for his attacking traits, has been in and out of Thomas Tuchel’s XI once again this season, with the Belgian international in competition with both Dani Alves and, at times, Thilo Kehrer, for a starting berth.

As such, the 27-year-old is not thought to be viewed as an integral member of PSG’s squad.

And United appear hopeful of taking advantage of this situation come the summer.

Interestingly, Meunier has made it known on multiple occasions in the past that he is a life-long Red Devils’ fan.
