In the summer of 2023, Manchester United wants to recruit Jean-Clair Todibo, but a deal can only be done if Harry Maguire leaves. Maguire ultimately remained at Old Trafford, and there is an opinion that the England international is currently the number 1 choice in defense because Lisandro Martinez is injured, and Raphael Varane is not used at the moment.
Varane is currently rumored to be able to leave as he is on the radar of Arab clubs. The Red Devils have identified Todibo as the target to replace Varane. The Old Trafford team can complete the deal in winter 2024.
However, a source from TEAMtalk confirmed Man Utd decided to wait until next summer to recruit the Nice defender due to difficulties surrounding player signings in January. The report claims that Nice are willing to sell the 23-year-old next year, with the club valuing him at around £43.5 million.
In addition to Varane, there are also question marks about the future of two other midfielders, Jonny Evans and Victor Lindelof. Both players only have contracts at Old Trafford until next summer.
