Rennes bid for Manchester United target Benoit Badiashile
The 19-year-old Frenchman is considered to be one of the best defenders of his age group in Europe. He made his debut for the Monaco senior side last season. The youngster has since amassed 46 appearances in which he has scored one goal and one assist. (h/t Transfermarkt)
Our interest in Badiashile is not new. The club has been keen on signing the youngster since Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Old Trafford. (h/t Mirror)
He has also garnered the attention of other European clubs such as Valencia and Bayer Leverkusen. Badiashile has experience of playing in the Champions League. He made two appearances for Monaco in the 2018-19 campaign.
Adding Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka has considerably improved our defence. We cannot rest on our laurels and will have to continue building to sustain an era of success.
Badiashile might not be ready to partner Maguire yet. Under the right guidance though, he can grow into an excellent defender. United will do well to take a chance on the young French youth international.
