Manchester United reportedly weigh up a move for Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile, who is rumoured to be on the radar of Valencia and Bayer Leverkusen.

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a move for Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently confirmed that he is looking to make changes to his squad ahead of the summer transfer window, although the financial implications arising from the coronavirus outbreak could hinder moves for highly-sought after attacking players such as Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.

The Red Devils are supposedly keen to iron out issues at the other end of the pitch as well, and according to RMC Sport, Badiashile is firmly on United's radar.

The 19-year-old has emerged as a regular fixture for Monaco since his debut in 2018, with Badiashile turning out 20 times across all competitions for the French outfit before the Ligue 1 season was curtailed.

The France Under-19 international is under contract at Monaco until 2024, though, and Les Monegasques have supposedly already rejected a €15m (£13.6m) bid for Badiashile from fellow Ligue 1 side Rennes.

Valencia and Bayer Leverkusen are also said to be monitoring the situation.
