Manchester United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are confident of pulling off a big money move for highly rated Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
French media outlet Le 10 Sport claim that the Red Devils have already made contact with the player’s representatives ahead of a possible transfer in the summer that could see Manchester United to the tune of €80m.
It was revealed that Norwegian tactician Solskjaer sees Tanguy Ndombele as a perfect partner for compatriot Paul Pogba in the Manchester United midfielder.
Ironically, Tanguy Ndombele made his debut for the French national team in October as a second-half substitute for Paul Pogba in an international friendly game with fellow Europeans Iceland.
France came from two goals down to avoid a shock home loss and play a 2-2 draw with lowly Iceland.
The player has four caps for the world champions.
Tanguy Ndombele has been linked with a lot of major clubs on the European continent as a result of his impressive performances for his French Ligue 1 club.
He initially joined Lyon from fellow French Ligue 1 club Amiens at the start of last season before he made the transfer permanent last summer.
In total, the 22-year-old has made 43 appearances for Lyon in the league since the start of last season.
