Manchester United are interested in signing Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, according to reports from the Metro.

The Frenchman is reportedly valued at around £70million after performing excellently in both domestic and Champions League competitions this season.

The 22-year-old has played a total of 45 games for Les Gones this term and has been on the radar of many of Europe’s biggest clubs due to his impressive performances.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has admitted that he would be prepared to sell Nbombele and has confirmed interest from United, rivals Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the president has admitted he would rather the France international would end up at Serie A giants Juventus.

It’s true that Juventus are after Ndombele,” he told Tuttosport. “But there’s also PSG, Manchester United and City.

I’d honestly like to see Ndombele at Juventus with (Miralem) Pjanic, a player we launched at Lyon who I’m still very attached to.”

We’ll see what happens. I won’t talk about money. Economic parameters are the priority when selling players, but I’d like to sell him to (Juventus Chief) Andrea Agnelli if all the offers were the same.
