Manchester United takeover by Sir Jim Ratcliffe is not expected to steer Jean-Claire Todibo deal

According to Evening Standard (h/t Manchester Evening News), Tottenham Hotspur might gain an advantage in securing the services of Nice defender Jean-Claire Todibo following the minority stake takeover by Sir Jim Ratcliffe at Manchester United. The takeover is not expected to facilitate United’s pursuit of the talented player.

Spurs are reportedly in discussions with Ligue 1 club Nice regarding the France international defender and are currently believed to be leading the race for his signature, ahead of United. Nice appears willing to negotiate a deal with Tottenham, prioritizing the right price over waiting for United’s involvement.

Tottenham has already initiated talks with Todibo’s representatives, assuring him of a significant role in the first team, alongside Micky van de Ven and Cristian Romero. Given Vthe former’s recent injury, Postecoglou will do well to consider the signing of a new center-back in the January transfer window.

This rising star from OGC Nice has truly made a name for himself as one of the most promising young defenders in Ligue 1. Not only that, but he has also caught the attention of none other than Man Utd, who are closely keeping an eye on his progress.

However, it is important to note that the French club is at present controlled by British billionaire Ratcliffe who looks set to gobble up a 25 % stake in the Red Devils.

As the transfer window approaches and with a number of key players out of action due to injuries and suspensions, it is absolutely vital for Spurs to make smart acquisitions. Nevertheless, it might not be the most prudent decision to allocate all of our resources to a single player.

Instead, by investing in other positions, we can enhance the overall depth of our squad, which will prove beneficial in the long run.

In our opinion, Todibo’s move to Spurs has the potential to be a fantastic decision. Given the manager’s interest in the player, it seems likely that he has a strategic plan in mind to utilise the player effectively and achieve success.
