Jean-Clair Todibo opens up on Man United transfer links as OGC Nice adjust price tag



| Last Updated:


Manchester United transfer target Jean-Clair Todibo has addressed his future amidst reports that OGC Nice have lowered their asking price for him.

It had been claimed by Spanish outlet Sport earlier this week that United, one of several Premier League clubs in for Todibo, would have to meet Nice’s £52 million asking price.

However, it has since been stated by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano that Nice will instead only be asking for approximately £40 million for their star defender’s services.

Writing on his social media platforms, Romano also confirmed that United have been watching the centre-back’s performances since last summer.

Though Nice are controlled by Manchester United partial-owners Ineos, United will still need to pay ‘market value’ for the defender, which is now believed to be the £40 million stated in Romano’s post.

Speaking on his future back in February, the Ligue 1 defender revealed that he has considered that this may be his final season at Nice.

“I am at Nice, and we’re having a great season. I don’t have my head elsewhere,” stated Todibo. “If I did, it would be difficult for me personally and for the group, too.

“I’m at Nice, I feel really good. We’ll see what happens in the summer but we’re not there yet. I don’t want to get ahead of myself. I don’t want to give false hope. For now, I’m here at Nice. Football moves quickly, you never know what’s going to happen.

“I’ll wait until the summer to make my decision. If my decision is to stay, I’ll announce it, if it is to leave, I’ll announce it too and I’ll thank everyone, but we’re not there yet.

“There are important games coming up. The goal is that if it is to be my final season at OGC Nice, then I want to leave here having done something beautiful with the club.

“The supporters and the club deserve players who give everything on the pitch, and to achieve something substantial. Personally, if I am to leave, I want to leave something good behind.”

The former Barcelona defender has made 110 appearances in all competitions for Nice, spanning four seasons with the club.
