Monaco send strong transfer message to Man United

Benoit Badiashile

French Ligue 1 giants Monaco have insisted that they will be keeping hold of Benoit Badiashile at the club for another season despite the interest coming from English Premier League side Man United.

Man United have been making moves to bring in a new centre-half to the club ahead of the new season and that has made them busier in this summer transfer window as they have a number of options in their books.

It is understood that the Red Devils have held talks with the French Ligue 1 club for a possible £22 million deal and that has been rejected by the club for the 19-year-old defender.

However, Monaco’s boss has sent a message to the Red Devils, informing them that they will be having Benoit Badiashile in their team in the coming season with the hope that he will play more matches to be able to improve.

According to Monaco, Man United will have to make an Anthony Martial-like bid to be able to lure the player out of the club this summer transfer window.

This development means the search for Man United is unending as they will make moves to get a partner for Harry Maguire to be able to compete for titles in the coming season.
