United are going through turmoil and Erik ten Hag has already expressed his desire to sign a defender during the winter window

Manchester United, under the leadership of Erik ten Hag, is reportedly considering a bid for Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo. This information comes from Italian media who have provided insights into the potential transfer fee that United might have to shell out for Todibo.

According to reports, Manchester United has shown interest in signing 23-year-old Jean-Clair Todibo from Nice during the upcoming January transfer window. The France international defender has been making waves with his performance and is now on the radar of several top-flight clubs.

Galetti further claimed that Todibo himself is open to a move to the Premier League. If this deal goes through, it could significantly bolster Manchester United's defensive line-up.

Todibo is expected to spark a big transfer saga, with Tottenham and Liverpool also interested in him

Nice are reportedly looking for a hefty sum between €50-€60 million (£43.41-£52.09 million) as transfer fees for their star player. While this might seem steep, it reflects the high regard in which Todibo is held and his potential value on-field.

However, securing Todibo won't be an easy task for Manchester United as they are not alone in their pursuit of this young talent. Tottenham Hotspur have also expressed interest in acquiring the former Barcelona defender.

In fact, there are speculations that Spurs are ready to guarantee him a place in their starting lineup if he decides to join them - an offer that could potentially sway his decision given its promise of immediate first-team action.

Liverpool too have been linked with an interest in signing him which further intensifies competition among these Premier League clubs.

As we approach closer to January’s transfer window opening up again, all eyes will be on where Jean-Clair Todibo lands next – whether he will don red for Manchester United, white for Tottenham Hotspur or red again but this time for Liverpool. Regardless of where he ends up, one thing is certain - Todibo's future in the Premier League looks promising and his potential move will be a significant highlight of the upcoming transfer window.
