Barcelona’s €14m Defender Is Available: Should Manchester United Make Move?
Barcelona defender Jean Clair Todibo is on the move again. According to Get football news France, Todibo has decided to leave Barcelona after a meeting with the club officials……….Barcelona’s €14m Defender Is Available
The defender was told he would not be a part of manager Ronald Koeman’s plans this season.
Schalke rejected the option to buy this summer.
Earlier on in this window, Barcelona were seeking €25m to allow him to depart, but are now willing to sell for less or even do a season-long loan arrangement.
This could be good news for Manchester United.
United need a centre-back to plug holes in their leaky defence.
Victor Lindelof is under criticism for a long time and club captain Harry Maguire needs a reliable partner. Eric Bailly looked decent against Luton Town midweek but his injury record is a concern.
United are also looking to sell defenders Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones. The club have been looking for a new center-back.
They lost the race to sign Gabriel to rivals Arsenal and are behind Man City for Kalidou Koulibaly.
Todibo could become a decent defender but United need someone better and already proven. His inexperience in competitive European football is not the quality United are after.
Jean-Clair Todibo is valued at €14m by Transfermarkt.
