Ten Hag rocked as Tottenham hijack priority £35m Man Utd transfer with talks on

 Tottenham are in talks to sign a £35m-rated defender Manchester United had earmarked as their number one transfer target in January, according to reports.

Next month, the Red Devils are ready to approve a large-scale purge that will include some of their most well-known players.It has been revealed by The Daily Mail, Independent, and Guardian that Raphael Varane, Casemiro, and Jadon Sancho are up for sale.

On loan, Donny van de Beek will join Eintracht Frankfurt, while Anthony Martial will also be let go.

Aside from Van van Beek, who seldom ever makes the matchday squads either, the Independent said Ten Hag would only approve deals if he could get suitable replacements.

Due to injuries sustained elsewhere, Varane has started United’s previous two games; therefore, it would only make sense to trade him if a replacement center-half were to come.

The 30-year-old Varane is reportedly determined to disprove United and compel the team to exercise the one-year option on his contract. If the nation’s national media is to be believed, United is still open to selling him.

Therefore, before Varane departs, United has to recruit a replacement center-back. According to the Mirror, Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo is United’s top target.

The 23-year-old is having an incredible season, helping Nice build the strongest defense in Ligue 1. In 16 games, Nice has only let up nine goals. Lille has conceded 12 goals, giving them the second-tightest defense.

The fact that Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the new United part-owner, owns Nice might potentially help Tedibo’s move.

Tottenham make their move for Todibo; Frenchman keen on Spurs

On December 7, Sky Sports did claim, though, that Tottenham had also seen Todibo.The Mail then disclosed that there had been two rounds of negotiations over Todibo joining Tottenham. Additionally, it was said that Toddibo is eager to join Spurs.

A new report from Football London has confirmed that Tottenham is in discussions to take Todibo away from Manchester United.

Manager Ange Postecoglou is reportedly in talks and is keen to wrap up his business as soon as possible during the winter window.

Spurs have set their primary goal for January to be buying a new center-back, much like Man Utd. Due to Micky van de Ven’s hamstring ailment, Ben Davies has been playing as an ordinary center-back with Cristian Romero recently.

If Postecoglou so chooses, he can choose Eric Dier. The Australian, though, doesn’t think highly of the 29-year-old, and his contract expires at the conclusion of the current campaign.

Therefore, it’s said that chairman Daniel Levy is keen to take advantage of Dier next month while he still has the opportunity. Todibo is the new center-back that would have to arrive before this could be done.

The Frenchman with the right foot was dubbed “the perfect defender for Postecoglou” by Football London. Todibo’s superiority in ball-carrying and progressive passing, in addition to his defense-oriented playmaking, is explained by them.

If Todibo decides to move clubs next month, Nice is predicted to receive a bid between £35 and £40 million.
