There are rumblings that Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in signing French defender Benoit Badiashile, who is currently playing for AS Monaco. Badiashile is currently under contract with Monaco. Badiashile will likely be the subject of competition from both Manchester United and Chelsea in the near future.
The towering central defender had an outstanding season for Monaco the year before, but it would appear that he will be leaving the squad in the near future given his current deal is slated to expire in only 18 months. The tall defender had a standout campaign the year before. Despite the fact that he had an outstanding campaign for Monaco the previous year, it would appear that he will be quitting the team in the near future.
He would be a tempting prospect for any team to take into consideration at the age of 21, especially given the likelihood that both Premier League clubs would soon have a need for a left-footed center defender.
During the summer, Lisandro Martinez, a left-footed defender who was then playing for Ajax, was sought after quickly by Erik ten Hag. Due to this, he was able to team a left-footer and a right-footer on the left side of his defensive tandem, which was previously impossible.
The sole central defender who is left-footed for United is still the recently crowned World Cup champion. This shows that the Red Devils will probably need to strengthen the position as soon as possible.
Foot Mercato estimates that Badiashile’s transfer fee will be close to €40 million, and they claim that Chelsea and United are both interested in signing him if the price is right.
The Croatian defender is still seen as being impossible by Chelsea, and for now, he most definitely is unattainable by Manchester United, despite the fact that Lionel Messi has been working hard to make him a more inexpensive choice throughout the FIFA World Cup. There was a speculation that the two teams will compete against one another for Josko Gvardiol quite some time ago. However, it appears that for the time being, neither club will have the funds to sign him. This is based on the data that is at hand right now.
Manchester United might make a move if they so choose during the summer transfer window, even if it is quite unlikely that the club will spend even €40 million on a central defense during the January transfer window. This is due to the June 1 opening of the summer transfer window.
Monaco will need to find Badiashile a new club in order to prevent the prospect of losing the player due to a Bosman ruling one year from now. This is carried out to eliminate the possibility of losing the player.
Therefore, if United decides to make one or more transfers in the center defense position, the Frenchman may be a viable choice.
Due to Harry Maguire’s outstanding World Cup performances, there have been reports that he may try to leave his present club at the end of the current season in order to join a place where he can play more first-team games. The World Cup is now being held in Russia, which is the source of this claim.
He did nothing to hurt his chances of finding a club that would be a good fit for him while he was away in Qatar, and now that he is free from the rigors of playing at Old Trafford, he may be an asset to another team. While he was away in Qatar, he did nothing to hurt his chances of finding a club that would be a good fit for him. During his time away in Qatar, he did not engage in any activities that would have damaged his prospects of finding a club that would be a good fit for him. While he was away in Qatar, he did nothing to hurt his chances of finding a club that would be a good match for him, and as a result, those prospects have not been hurt in any way. He did not do anything to hurt his chances of finding a club that would be a good fit for him while he was away in Qatar.
There is a good chance that Badiashile is the most effective target to go after in that situation in order to strengthen Ten Hag’s defensive options. This is due to the vast amount of experience that Badiashile possesses.
