Barcelona to hold negotiations with the La Liga winners for the Frenchman.

Having made only two starts across all competitions this season, Spanish reports have claimed Barcelona will allow Jean-Clair Todibo to depart the Camp Nou in January.

Southampton, Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan and Watford have been credited with an interest in the centre-half.

On December 20th, Sport claimed Manchester United have ‘entered very strong’ for the ace and their emissaries travelled to Barcelona to hold negotiations with the La Liga winners for the Frenchman.

Two days later, the same outlet explained the Catalan club have received offers from the Red Devils, Bayer Leverkusen and AC Milan for Todibo and Blaugrana will accept a transfer, provided a buy-back option is included as a part of the deal.

Diario AS have now joined Sport in discussing the Old Trafford club’s interest in the defender.

The Spanish outlet states: ‘In recent weeks the interest of Manchester United and Milan has emerged, although teams such as Leverkusen have also asked about his situation.’

It’s stated Ernesto Valverde’s side want to negotiate Jean-Clair’s exit, but Barca technical secretary Eric Abidal and his assistant Ramon Planes will only consider allowing the player to leave if there is a chance of his return in the future.

Elsewhere, transfer expert Ian McGarry claims that Manchester United have made contact with the Serie A side Napoli about putting together a proposal for Kalidou Koulibaly.

With the Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti having worked with the 28-year-old star during his time in Naples, Everton have also been touted with an interest.

In spite of his valuation going down over the past six months, Partenopei may still look to recoup in excess of £60 million for his services.
