DEVASTATING NEWS; coming from a reliable source, The news that Liverpool are in pole position to sign Manchester United’s top target has sent shockwaves through Old Trafford. The Red Devils had been working hard to secure the signature of the player, but their failure to do so has left them reeling. It is not yet clear how they will react to this setback, but it is certain to have a significant impact on their plans for the future. United left reeling as Liverpool steal march on their top target, leaving Old Trafford in crisis.

According to French media, Liverpool has emerged as the front-runner to sign Jean-Clair Todibo.


Nice’s defensive standout has solidified his position as one of Europe’s premier center-backs, leading Ligue 1’s top defense this season. His excellence on the pitch has garnered attention, with Manchester United expressing interest last summer. Despite being on the verge of a move to Old Trafford, no deal materialized.

The Red Devils, particularly with Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS group, which also owns Nice, maintained their pursuit. The anticipation was that the talented French center-back would join Manchester United, addressing their defensive concerns under Erik ten Hag. However, Todibo’s journey to the Premier League isn’t as straightforward, as other top clubs find him equally appealing.

Liverpool has now entered the fray, shifting attention away from Chelsea, according to Fabrizio Romano. This move aligns with Liverpool’s prior interest in Todibo’s teammate Khephren Thuram, as reported by FootballTransfers in 2023. Recent revelations from local paper Nice-Matin suggest that Liverpool is now closer to securing Todibo than their Manchester counterparts. The allure of a more stable environment and Todibo’s friendship with Ibrahima Konate, a key figure at Liverpool, play crucial roles in this potential transfer.

The prospect of Todibo eventually succeeding the aging Virgil van Dijk adds intrigue to Liverpool’s pursuit. However, a January move seems unlikely due to his hefty €60 million price tag. Todibo remains content on the French Riviera, where Nice is engaged in a fierce battle for Champions League qualification and, perhaps, even the league title, trailing PSG by a mere five points.
