As we covered in our previous post, Manchester United are in a need of Central Midfielders this summer and have already been linked with the likes of Youri Tielemans of Leicester City.
However, Ed Woodward and co. wants to keep their options open by having more than one targets for the position. There have been rumours of various players been linked to us but now, it has officially been confirmed by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, that we are interested in the services of Lyon superstar Tanguy Ndombele.
As per the President:
“It’s true [Juventus are interested]. But there’s also PSG, Manchester United and Manchester City.
“Honestly, I’d like to see Ndombele at Juventus with Pjanic, a player we helped developed at Lyon to whom we’re still linked. We’ll see what happens.”
Tanguy Ndombele has been one of the biggest names of the Ligue 1 for the past couple of seasons. The 22-year-old Frenchman has already been compared with the likes of Paul Pogba for his performances (not his attitude!).
However, the midfielder won’t come cheap and with Lyon’s President preferring a transfer to Juventus, it won’t be a straightforward signing. But if we are still able to pull it off, this could go down as one of our finest signings of the season!
