Mail Sport reported in August that Manchester United wanted to recruit Jean-Clair Todibo to replace Harry Maguire. However, in the context of Maguire continuing to stay at Old Trafford, Man Utd’s Todibo deal cannot be completed.
Currently, the French player is on the Nice payroll. Unable to go to Man Utd, the former Barcelona midfielder is satisfied with staying in Ligue 1. Sharing on L’Equipe, the 23-year-old star expressed:
“I don’t deny that I have thoughts of joining a top club to increase my chances of making the French national team. However, at Nice, I was given a chance to play.”
Emphasizing the rumors related to Man United, Todibo added:
“I have had different experiences than before in my career. My thoughts are much deeper and more mature. I don’t want to make a mistake in my choice. I’m still very calm. I’m waiting to be introduced to the complete project.”
This season, Todibo has appeared 3 times for Nice in Ligue 1. During this time, he contributed 1 assist.
