Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd want €80m France bulldozer as Pogba partner; Wolves in stunning €120m coup
Date published: Sunday 10th February 2019 3:31
Manchester United have made contact with the agent of a France midfielder, while Wolves could stun the football world with another raid on Portugal, according to Sunday’s European papers.
UNITED HOLD TALKS WITH NDOMBELE AGENT
Ndombele has been in fine form for Lyon this season and has been a key component in their side in allowing the likes of Nabil Fekir and Houssem Aouar to flourish further forward; now Solskjaer wants to replicate that with Pogba at United.
The report claims Lyon won’t let go of Ndombele without a fight, however, and reported talks between United and his agent are unlikely to go down well with no-nonsense Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.
But with United ready to make him a transfer priority along with Kalidou Koulibaly, Solskjaer is hoping the star can not only firm up a potential title bid, but also add muscle and guile to United’s spine.
