UNITED AT HEAD OF QUEUE FOR LYON STAR
Different reports recently in the British press suggested Manchester City and Tottenham were both leading the chase for Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. France Football reckons neither is true…
Apparently, Manchester United are the club showing most interest in Ndombele. The 21-year-old France international is also wanted by Barcelona, which suits Jean-Michael Aulas just fine.
The Lyon president said last week that he had rejected offers “worth much more than €50million” and that if Ndombele were to be sold, then “we could reach the level of transfer fee that Paul Pogba had”. Look how well that’s worked out for United.
JOSE JOINS MAN HUNT
Man Utd are also sniffing around Dennis Man.
The answer to your question is: a 20-year-old attacking midfielder who has scored seven goals in 20 appearances for FCSB. The answer to your next question: Steaua Bucharest. They changed their name 18 months ago and forgot to tell us. Something to do with a dispute with the Romanian military, and you probably don’t want to be messing with those boys.
The Mirror says Mauricio Pochettino sent a scout to watch Man this weekend but FCSB’s game was postponed because of fog. Roma and Fenerbahce are also on the case and the Turkish side are reported to have had a £2.5million laughed off by FCSB.
