Manchester United are interested in signing 23-year-old center back Jean-Clair Todibo from OGC Nice.
Other Premier League clubs, like Newcastle and Liverpool, are looking forward to signing the French defender when the transfer window opens.
Also, several Italian sides, including Juventus and Inter Milan, are interested in signing the defender.
It was reported that OGC Nice’s asking price is around £30 million, and for that given price, Jean-Clair Todibo may leave the club.
The defender has played with big teams in Europe, with Barcelona and Schalke 04.
His beautiful style of play and versatility had made him one of the most sought-after players in the French League.
If Manchester United sign the player, he is likely to be the replacement for Lisandro Martinez. With a possible change of owner, it looks like the Red Devils will get a tangible investment in the squad.
Todibo will be the third choice ahead of Harry Maguire, who has failed to impress the manager.
The Frenchman may pair with Victor Lindelof as the third and fourth choice in the heart of Manchester United’s defense.
However, the player still has a four-year contract with French side OGC Nice.
Jean-Clair Todibo Stats
The OGC Nice defender had made 126 appearances with three goals and one assist. The defender had received 24 yellow cards and four red cards.
Also, the defender had made only five appearances for the French team and had failed to score a single goal.
Agent Jean-Clair Todibo
He is one of the top football agents in the world. Bruno Satin can be categorized under the Mino Raiola group.
Mr. Satin represents players such as Lama, Michaël Landreau, Julien Escudé and Olivier Dacourt.
Jean-Clair Todibo Barca
Todibo and Barcelona came to an arrangement on January 8 that would allow him to join them for free in July 2019, when his contract with Toulouse was set to end.
But the Spanish team accelerated the transfer, and on January 31, 2019, he joined the team. He was given the No. 6 jersey and became the 22nd French player to sign for Barcelona.
