Man United finalize a £40 million transfer in January. “It is my dream to play at Old Trafford.” A charming star among close ties to Liverpool

German journalist Florian Plettenberg claims that Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo is being considered for a winter transfer by Manchester United.

Towards the end of the summer transfer window, the Frenchman was strongly linked to the Red Devils, but a deal never came together.

Harry Maguire was supposed to leave Manchester United in order to pursue a trade for Todibo, but the former captain chose to stay at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have not stopped mentioning Todibo, and Plettenberg says the player is on the team’s winter transfer wishlist.

The German journalist went on to say that this shouldn’t have an impact on the team’s pursuit of Antonio Silva, the great player from Benfica, who is their main summer target.

Todibo may start for Man Utd in Varane’s place this winter.

Raphael Varane has slipped in manager Erik ten Hag’s hierarchy during the last month.

The Dutchman doesn’t think Varane is talented enough to play left center back and has favored Harry Maguire over him in that position.

He has therefore frequently been a substitute, and we won’t be shocked if he chooses to accept a new challenge in the beginning of 2024.

By leaving, United would be able to raise additional money to pay for Todibo’s signing. For almost €40 million, the Frenchman might be signed.

The 23-year-old would be United’s finest purchase. He is a powerful ball-playing defender who enjoys taking opponents on and making tackles.

But his work rate and retracement ability are his greatest assets. In the French top division this season, he averaged an incredible 7.9 ball recoveries.

The likelihood of United signing him should increase as Sir Jim Ratcliffe is close to obtaining a minority ownership share in the team from the Glazers.

The fact that the British millionaire owns the majority of Nice should give United a great chance to sign the former Barcelona player.

If Varane stayed with the team, United might try to get Todibo on a loan with a buyout clause.
