Manchester United have joined the race for AS Monaco star defender Benoit Badiashile, according to the latest reports.
Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hunting for a new centre-half to add to his roster this summer after his defence leaked 10 goals in the final five games of last campaign.
Ajax starlet sensation Matthijs de Ligt looks set to sign for Serie A giants Juventus and United have had a £70m opening offer for Leicester City’s star Harry Maguire rejected.
The Red Devils are expected to continue their reported pursuit of the 26-year-old but the Foxes will not let him go on the cheap and are demanding a record-breaking sum.
As a result, the club are being linked with a host of cheaper alternatives and the latest is Les Monegasques’ 18-year-old Badiashile.
French newspaper L’Equipe, quoted by The Daily Star, reports that Red Devils may have turned their attention to the young centre-back.
