Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are now the Red Devils’ first-choice center backs, with Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire performing the role of backup center backs.
During the latter part of the previous season, Maguire was entirely out of favor, and it is possible that he will soon be heading for the exit door. Recently, West Ham made a bid for him that was thirty million pounds.
It has been reported by RMC Sport that the Red Devils have made contact with Nice in order to discuss the possibility of a transaction involving Todibo. For the relocation, they have ‘asked for the requirements’ to be met.
In the meantime, United has also communicated with the player’s entourage, and the conversations that took place were described as “constructive.” At some point in the future, a move will be contingent upon Maguire quitting the club.
If Maguire decides to depart, Manchester United may make a play to acquire Todibo.
Negotiations over Maguire are currently taking place between West Ham and United. They recently made an offer of thirty million pounds, and it was stated today that a settlement may be reached for thirty-five million pounds.
On the other hand, a deal is still difficult to negotiate because the Red Devils will also be required to reimburse his salaries. If he is willing to accept a major pay drop at West Ham, the club will have to provide him with a substantial payoff.
Todibo, who has been a long-term priority for the Red Devils, might become the focus of attention if they are successful in finalizing his transfer. The year 2019 marked the beginning of the club’s interest in signing him.
The 23-year-old has made tremendous strides in his development over the course of the past four years. As a result of his success, the Frenchman was recognized with his first call-up to the national team earlier in the month of March.
The addition of Todibo would be an improvement over Maguire. He is an excellent center back who plays the ball well. During the previous season, he had an accuracy rate of 89 percent and completed 57 passes for every Ligue 1 appearance he made.
During this time, he was successful in 65 percent of his duels, recorded 1.2 interceptions, 2.2 tackles, and 3.1 clearances, and won 65 percent of his duels. It is expected that he will have little issue adjusting to the requirements of the Premier League.
It is possible that a deal might be easily reached if United are willing to come close to the sum that Nice is asking for, which is approximately €45 million (£39 million). Initially, it is dependent on Maguire making his way towards the exit door.
