Amid Defensive Injury Crisis Man Utd Reignite Interest In Todibo
Amidst defensive injury crisis, Manchester United (Man Utd) is reportedly circling back to Jean-Clair Todibo in January.
The football club is said to be targeting Todibo as Man Utd manager, Erik ten Hag seeks a centre-back. The Dutch professional football manager played as a centre-back.
A deal also depends on Jacob Harry Maguire’s situation as Everton reportedly eyes January deal for the under-fire Manchester United star.
According to an Italian sports journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils are actively scouting the market for a centre-back and are drawing up a list of potential targets that they want to pursue in 2024.
Recent injuries to Lisandro Martinez and Sergio Reguilon have had the alarm bells ringing at Old Trafford which has further hastened the process.
However, the situation remains complicated as Harry Maguire still remains on the books.
If the English defender is sold off in the next window then the board might sanction the funds required to get a new face.
Otherwise, the transfer operation might have to wait until the next summer, it was gathered.
Todibo has had an impressive start to the season at Nice and he continues to be a top priority for the club after Benjamin Pavard went on to join Inter.
Bayer Leverkusen defender Edmond Tapsoba also features on the shortlist.
However, the Burkinabe footballer recently signed an extension at Bay Arena until 2028 which puts the German club in a firm position to dictate the terms of the deal.
