‘Real interest’: Man Utd must move quickly to sign €40m star as AC Milan enter race

Posted by

With AC Milan now in the running for Nice defender Jean Clair-Todibo, Manchester United has to pick up the pace in their pursuit of him.

In the last days of the summer transfer window, the Frenchman was strongly connected to the Red Devils, but a deal did not happen.

Prior to signing the former Barcelona player, the leadership intended to let go of Harry Maguire, but the former captain chose to remain in his position.

In terms of Financial Fair Play, United is still in a challenging situation, but they could need to move more quickly to acquire Todibo.

Nice is still hesitant to consider an exit, but RMC Sport reports that the Rossoneri have entered the competition for the 24-year-old.

Jean-Clair Todibo will only be sold by Nice for the correct amount.
The Ligue 1 team has performed admirably in the first half of the league season. They now trail leaders Paris Saint-Germain by five points.

It is more crucial to hold onto Todibo since the team has a real chance of winning the league and making it to the Champions League.

Given that Sir Jim Ratcliffe is presently the owner of the French team, some United supporters think he may provide the Red Devils an advantage.

The British millionaire is unlikely to help United in any way, though. This year, he will only assume ownership of a 25% share with United.

Ratcliffe will soon be in charge of football operations, albeit that might not happen until February.

Thus, agreeing to Nice’s demands could be necessary for a deal with Todibo. The club wants to sell its prized asset for at least €40 million.

United supposedly has a “real interest” in signing him, but they will need to find other sources of funding in order to pay for the highly-regarded player.

Raphael Varane has been connected to a high-profile departure to Saudi Arabia, but as of right now, United is not close to authorising any such departures.
