Manchester United Include Boubakary Soumare & Martin Odegaard In January Transfer Plans


Manchester United are said to have included LOSC Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare in their January transfer wish-list following the player’s perfect start to the ongoing season.

The 20-year-old Frenchman is seen as one of the potential replacements for Paul Pogba whose stay at Old Trafford is under huge uncertainty.

Soumare is one of the regular starters in Lille’s squad and ESPN are claiming that Solskjaer has set his eyes on the youngster as he continues to prepare for life after the former Juventus midfielder.

The media source further revealed that Lille have set a price tag of £34m on Soumare’s services but it remains unknown if the Red Devils will be willing to meet the set price.

If the report is something to lean on, then, the Ligue 1 could be losing two players to the Premier League giants in January as Victor Osimhen is equally linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams.

Osimhen, 20, is also in one of his best forms and the Norwegian manager is reportedly among the top managers interested in his services in January.

Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Barcelona and Newcastle are all said to be monitoring the Nigerian ahead of the next transfer window.

Real Madrid striker Martin Odegaard is equally linked with a move to the Old Trafford after his bright start to the season.
