Manchester United enter race to sign Nice defender wanted by Premier League duo

French defender Jean-Clair Todibo has been linked with a move to the Premier League at the end of the season, with Manchester United among the clubs listed with apparent interest.

The 23-year-old has been a key player for Ligue 1 side Nice this season and that has led to attention from some big Premier League clubs.

According to a report cited by GFFN, a Premier League trio of Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle United are all interested in signing the versatile defender.

However, Todibo would cost a fee of around €30 million (£26.5m) this summer.

Todibo is versatile enough to play at full-back as well as centre-back. He could come in to replace one of Harry Maguire or Victor Lindelof, unless the pair stay at United – then he could still push them down the pecking order at least.

All three clubs will be looking for reinforcements this summer.
