Prior to the summer transfer window closing, the Red Devils must bolster their defense, and it is anticipated that the youthful French international will join Old Trafford.
L’Equipe reports that the 23-year-old defender’s transfer from the Ligue 1 team to Manchester United is about to occur.
The well-known media source stated that Nice is getting ready for its central defender to join the 20-time English champions.
Harry Maguire, the England international, is still at Old Trafford even though Manchester United and West Ham United agreed on a price to trade the former captain.
He is currently Erik ten Hag’s fourth-choice central defense, and United should sign Jean-Clair Todibo soon to push the former Leicester City player lower down the ladder and potentially give up on leaving.
Remaining with the Red Devils would mean jeopardizing his spot on the Three Lions’ European Championship roster and warming the bench.
During the previous season, Todibo played in 33 league games for Nice and contributed to the team’s 10 clean sheet total.
The former Barcelona central defender’s future is uncertain, therefore he was left out of the squad for the most recent Ligue 1 match against FC Lorient.
His contract is still in effect for more than three years, and he is worth an estimated £42.7 million (50 million euros).
