Manchester United “considering” bringing THREE Nice players to the Premier League



| Last Updated:


With INEOS planning a mass exodus of players at Manchester United this summer, there have been discussions over how Nice can factor into United’s transfer business.

United are believed to be prepared to sell as many as eleven players this summer, with the Premier League side keen to kick off Sir Jim Ratcliffe‘s time at the club in fashion.

With expected exits across every part of the pitch, INEOS are believed to be open to the idea of turning to another of their clubs in Nice to supply some of United’s summer recruits.

Several of Nice’s squad have been long-term targets of current United manager Erik ten Hag. UtdDistrict understands that despite Ten Hag’s future being up in the air, the Dutchman is still involved in the current recruitment plans for the Red Devils.

Two names from the Nice squad that could be set to move to Old Trafford according to HITC are Jean-Clair Todibo and Melvin Bard.

Todibo, alongside Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite, has been frequently linked with a move to United. If either of the pair were to join, they would represent the club’s marquee defensive signing, with the possibility of two centre-backs joining the club still in the cards.

Bard, meanwhile, has impressed at left-back throughout his time at Nice. At just 23 years old, he has already made over 100 Ligue 1 appearances.

Bard has yet to have a single spell of injury throughout his senior career, something that shines a positive light on him, especially with the concerns surrounding the fitness of both Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia.

One surprising addition to the list is midfielder Khephren Thuram, who senior officials at United are believed to have been discussing of late.

If United are to make a move for Thuram, then they will likely need to fight off competition from several Premier League sides.

HITC’s report notes that Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Newcastle and Tottenham are all known to have an interest in the Frenchman’s services.

With just one year left on his deal, Thuram is a player that “intrigues” several people at United.
