Man United eyeing move for 21-year-old midfielder, club reluctant to sell: report

Manchester United are considering making a summer move for Tanguy Ndombele, although Lyon are reluctant to sell the 21-year-old midfielder.

That’s according to French media outlet Le10Sport, translated by the Manchester Evening News. That’s because the Frenchman only signed Ndombele this summer, but they could be tempted into parting with the midfielder if the right offer comes in. Apparently, their asking price is €50m (£44m).

After signing Fred and Diogo Dalot already, Jose Mourinho clearly isn’t planning on hanging around this summer. However, with the World Cup in full flow, it may be tough for the Red Devils to secure any more signings before the tournament is over.

As for Ndombele, he played an impressive 47 games last season, which would have brought vital experience into the young man’s game.

United aren’t the only side interested in signing the midfielder, though, with Manchester City and Juventus both interested; that tells you everything you need to know about Ndombele’s talents.

With Marouane Fellaini yet to commit to a new contract and Michael Carrick retiring, United need two new bodies in that area. Obviously, we’ve already alluded to the Fred signing, but Ndombele would be an astute piece of business as he’d be a long-term project for the self-proclaimed Special One.
