France Football have a transfer special ahead of the January transfer window, so brace yourselves for a lot of claims.
We’ll start the ball rolling with a nice casual one that should get Manchester United fans very excited: Tanguy Ndombele.
The Lyon midfielder is widely seen as one of the most promising at his position in Ligue 1 (and maybe even Europe), and the French club were already swatting away €50m offers from Manchester City last summer.
Continuing in his stride, the 21-year-old could leave in the near future for a bigger club for a hefty fee, and France Football believe it isn’t Pep Guardiola’s side who are the keenest, but their rivals from across the city: The Red Devils.
The French magazine state Manchester United are the ‘most determined’ to sign him, and have the financial ability to attract the new France international to Old Trafford.
However, the current situation in the Premier League could be a stumbling block in the negotiations, as could the cloud of uncertainty hovering over José Mourinho’s head regarding the manager’s future.
Jean-Michel Aulas recent revealed clubs might need to spend a similar amount to what Manchester United spent on Paul Pogba to convince him to sell his starlet.
