‘Definitely Getting Him IMO’ ‘Nonsense’ Fans On Social Media React To United’s Reported Interest In £31.5m Ligue One Starlet

Manchester United are interested in Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile, according to reports in France.

The 18-year-old has been on the club’s radar for some time, but the Ligue One side are said to be demanding at least €35m (£31.5m) for the player.

Some fans on Twitter believe Badiashile could be a good signing for the club:

Others, though, are sceptical believing that United continue to be linked with bids that never materialise for players:

Badiashile made his first-team debut in November. It was a baptism of fire for the teenager as he was selected to start against Paris Saint-Germain.

It was a chastening experience as Monaco were battered 4-0 at home. Still, the centre-half kept his place in the side and went on to make 26 appearances last season.

United are not the only team keen on Badiashile, with Valencia and Wolves also having expressed an interest in the defender in recent days.
