Jose Mourinho lining up official bid for 25-year-old Ligue 1 winner

Monaco defender Djibril Sidibe has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United.

Manager Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on making changes in the full-back areas, with the futures of Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian both in doubt ahead of the summer transfer window.

According to Le10Sport, Mourinho has identified Sidibe as one of his desired incomings and contact has already been made regarding a transfer.

The 25-year-old is currently nearing the end of his second campaign at Stade Louis II, with 73 appearances being made in all competitions.

However, while departures are expected at the Ligue 1 outfit ahead of next season, Monaco remain in a strong position regarding the French international due to four years remaining on his contract.

Meanwhile, United have firmed up their interest in Celtic defender Kieran Tierney as they look to add reinforcements to defence and midfield this summer, reports claim.

The Scotland international has impressed the Red Devils’ scouting department and finds himself high up on Jose Mourinho’s wish list after a series of impressive displays this season.

Tierney has long impressed Manchester United officials, but any doubts they had over inexperience have no been quashed with the 20-year-old performing admirably in both the Champions League and on the international stage.
