Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo has become the object of desire for several Premier League clubs, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle United the latest to show interest in the French centre-back. The cost of a possible transfer is reportedly estimated at at least 50 million euros, indicating Todibo’s high valuation in the market.
Todibo, who already had experience at FC Barcelona, flourished in Ligue 1 with Nice and caught the attention of key English clubs. Chelsea and Newcastle join the list of suitors, while Fabrizio Romano has previously reported Manchester United’s ongoing interest in the talented defender, according to English media.
With Todibo needing to strengthen its defensive lines, it represents an attractive option for these clubs.
The Premier League is in dispute over the signing of Todibo
-Manchester United: Manchester United are looking for a long-term successor to Raphael Varane, who is being targeted by several key clubs in the coming markets, and Todibo could fit the role perfectly.
-Chelsea: On the other hand, Chelsea, who have not had a standout performance this season, could benefit from signing Todibo to strengthen their defense, especially given Thiago Silva’s age. Fluminense’s goal is to continue his career after his contract at Chelsea is terminated.
-Newcastle: Newcastle United’s ambitious project also finds in Todibo a valuable option to continue its growth. At 22 years old, the French defender offers a young and promising profile whose price is reasonable given his prognosis and potential.
The competition for Todibo between these Premier League clubs promises to be intense. With at least three big-name suitors, the transfer window could move significantly with the signing of the French centre-back, who could be an important asset to any of these clubs as they seek success in the second half of the season.
