Last week, RMC Sport stated AS Monaco weren’t impressed with Manchester United’s offer to sign Youssouf Fofana in the last window.

The Red Devils had tried to sign the midfielder on a loan deal with an option to buy, and continue to have him on their radar. They are joined by Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain in the transfer chase.

Manchester United are keeping a close eye on the 24-year-old, if Calciomercato is to be believed.

On Tuesday, Fofana scored in France’s 2-2 draw against Greece and his goal was crucial for Les Bleus to avoid defeat in the European qualifier. He also managed a goal and an assist in France’s win over Gibraltar last week.

It’s claimed Manchester United had a scout closely monitor the player yesterday and his performance has ‘left a mark’ on them.

Juve sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli and his scouting staff were also watching Fofana. The report states the negotiations with Monaco won’t be easy for the Old Lady, who will also have to ‘anticipate the competition’ from Erik ten Hag’s side and PSG.

Through his goal and the overall performance, the website says the Frenchman has sent a clear message to those clubs who are interested.

On Tuesday, Tutto Juve reported Manchester United are ready to overcome both Juventus and PSG in the race to sign the player, who is valued at €30m.
