EPL: Man United Eyeing £13.7m Bargain Transfer For Barcelona Player


Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo is the latest player to be linked with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United in this transfer window.

Manchester United found out that the centre back position could be a problematic one after their first league game ended in a disastrous manner.

Jean-Clair Todibo is a centre back by trade and can also feature in other defensive areas.

Mundo Deportivo stated that Manchester United won’t have to pay over the odds for the 20-year-old as Barcelona are only demanding for £13.7m.

Manchester United lost their league opener last weekend as they were beaten 3-1 at home by Crystal Palace and Swedish international Victor Lindelof was at fault for the three goals conceded.

Lindelof partnered club-record signing Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence during the Palace game.

Apart from Todibo, Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, RB Leipzig star Dayot Upamecano etc. have all been mentioned as a possible centre back signing at Manchester United.

Jean-Clair Todibo has suffered from a lot of injury problems in recent seasons but his quality is not in doubt as he showed during his loan spell at Schalke 04 in the German top flight.

The injury ended his loan spell at Schalke 04 abruptly last season.
