United is in turmoil as Liverpool seizes the advantage on their key target, plunging Old Trafford into crisis.

Nice’s Defensive Star Draws Interest from Premier League Giants


Nice’s defensive standout has solidified his reputation as one of Europe’s elite center-backs, anchoring the top defense in Ligue 1 this season. His stellar performances have garnered significant attention, with Manchester United showing interest last summer. Despite nearly securing a move to Old Trafford, the deal fell through.

The Red Devils, through Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS group—which also owns Nice—have maintained their pursuit of the talented French center-back, expecting him to strengthen their defense under Erik ten Hag. However, Todibo’s potential transfer to the Premier League has become more complex with other top clubs expressing interest.

Liverpool has now joined the race, diverting attention from Chelsea, according to Fabrizio Romano. This interest aligns with Liverpool’s previous pursuit of Todibo’s teammate, Khephren Thuram, as reported by FootballTransfers in 2023. Recent reports from Nice-Matin suggest that Liverpool is now closer to securing Todibo than Manchester United.

A key factor in this potential transfer is the stability Liverpool offers and Todibo’s friendship with Ibrahima Konate, a crucial player for the Reds. The prospect of Todibo eventually replacing the aging Virgil van Dijk adds further allure to Liverpool’s interest.

However, a January transfer seems unlikely due to his substantial €60 million price tag. Todibo is content on the French Riviera, where Nice is fiercely competing for Champions League qualification and possibly the league title, trailing PSG by only five points.


Fans and Pundits React 

The potential move has generated significant buzz among fans and pundits alike. Liverpool supporters are excited about the prospect of bolstering their defense with one of Europe’s top talents, while Manchester United fans are eager to see their club secure Todibo to reinforce their backline. The transfer saga is set to be one of the most talked-about stories in the upcoming window, with both clubs vying for a player who could dramatically impact their defensive stability.

As the January transfer window approaches, all eyes will be on Nice’s star defender and the unfolding battle between two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.
