Man Utd wanted to recruit Jean-Clair Todibo last summer, but the midfielder wanted to stay in Ligue I to play football, to increase his chances of being called up to the French team.
At this time, Man Utd still wants to reinforce the defense. Lisandro Martinez’s long-term injury makes coach Erik Ten Hag’s options increasingly limited. According to The Sun, the Red Devils want to return to this deal in January.
Todibo was praised by former teammate Aaron Ramsey as “a very, very talented player”. An important thing for Man Utd to succeed at the negotiating table is that they must commit to letting Todibo start. He needs to play regularly to have a chance to attend EURO 2024.
At Nice, the midfielder missed only one match in the past 12 rounds of Ligue I and Todibo’s excellence is the reason why his parent team is only one point behind Paris Saint-Germain in the rankings.
If Sir Jim Ratcliffe takes over Man Utd, this deal can be promoted because he is the owner of Nice.
