Manchester United monitoring €30m-rated Ligue 1 star

Manchester United continue to keep tabs on a Ligue 1 defender.


The player in question? Nice centre-back Jean-Clair Todibo, who is valued at €30m by transfermarket.com.

Todibo joined Nice in 2021 from FC Barcelona in a cut-price deal. He has since featured 109 times for the French outfit, including on 34 occasions in Ligue 1 during the 2022/23 season.

When Manchester United were first credited with an interest in Todibo, it was claimed that the Red Devils were also scouting AS Monaco’s Axel Disasi.

The latter has since made a move to Premier League side Chelsea, but Fabrizio Romano has reported on Wednesday that United continue to monitor Todibo:

“I mentioned in April that Man United sent their scouts multiple times to follow both Todibo and Disasi – they’re very attentive to French market,” Romano said.

“Todibo is still being monitored, and we’ll have to wait and see how Man United will act. The priority will be a midfielder for now, so there’s nothing imminent on Todibo.”

Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are United’s current starting centre-back pair, and the arrival of a new centre-back likely means one of Harry Maguire and Lindelof will be sold in the summer to make room.
