Manchester United are keeping tabs on AS Monaco defender Benoît Badiashile, according to reports.
The principality club have let a few players leave as free agents, while Aurélien Tchouaméni is close to completing a move to Real Madrid, and there are a few other players whose future remains to be sorted out and the defender is included in this list.
That’s according to L’Equipe, who explain that everything is open with regards to the 21-year-old’s future.
The centre-back has maintained good performances in the second half of the season even after Monaco rejected an offer from Newcastle United in January.
Due to his profile and displays, the France U21 international is appreciated by clubs across Europe, with Manchester United among them as the newspaper states the Red Devils are ‘very attentive’ to his situation at the Ligue 1 side.
The player’s contract expires in 2023 and it needs to be seen whether Monaco are ready to cash in from his sale this summer.
Badiashile, for his part, is aware of having confidence of his manager, Philippe Clement.
He can possibly feature in the Champions League group stages next season after Monaco made it to the qualifiers of the competition.
Despite all this, the Frenchman doesn’t close door any doors and will not force a move away from this summer.
Badiashile could be an option for Erik ten Hag’s side to bolster their defence, but for now, Manchester United are only attentive of his situation at Monaco.
