Report: Man Utd target OGC Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo

Manchester United are reportedly eager to sign centre-back Jean-Clair Todibo from OGC Nice, after his impressive performances in Ligue 1 this past season.

Initially, the Red Devils showed interest in Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite, but the Toffees' substantial financial demands have led the club to shift their focus towards Todibo.

The 24-year-old is seen as a quality acquisition, with the physical and technical attributes necessary to excel in English football.

Todibo's transfer, however, faces complications due to UEFA regulations, which prohibit transfers between clubs with the same owners.

Despite this, Manchester United are exploring various options to navigate these rules and finalise the deal.

This move comes in the wake of Raphael Varane's departure from Manchester United on a free transfer earlier this summer.

With the team's defensive vulnerabilities evident last season, reinforcing the backline is a top priority.

Todibo, being at the peak of his powers, is eager to prove himself at the highest level and could establish himself as a key player for the club.

Furthermore, Todibo's transfer is likely to be more cost-effective compared to Branthwaite, making him an attractive option for Manchester United.
