Man Utd ‘ready to make transfer offer for £26m France midfielder as Amrabat and Casemiro continue to struggle’ MANCHESTER UNITED are ready to make an offer for French international Youssouf Fofana, according to reports. As Sofyan Amrabat and Casemiro continue to struggle in Erik ten Hag’s side, the £26million-rated Monaco star is set to be a potential replacement. The midfield’s poor performance this season has not gone unnoticed and Ten Hag is ready to bring reinforcements in the new year. According to Caught Offside, the Red Devils are monitoring Fofana with a view to launching a bid. At just £26m, the 24-year-old would prove quite a steal. Man Utd and Monaco now just need to sort an agreement in the coming weeks. READ MORE MAN UTD NEWS Fofana has been a key player this term for Monaco and started in all 15 of his Ligue 1 runouts. He has the physical and technical qualities to go far in English football but it is whether he can adapt quickly in the Premier League. The ex-Strasbourg star can play as a central and defensive midfielder. Fofana has one goal and three assists to his name across all competitions this season. Most read in Football CASINO SPECIAL – BEST CASINO WELCOME OFFER S Fofana would find it hard to turn down any approach from Old Trafford, according to the report. Man Utd haven’t had the same Casemiro this season as they did last year with the 31-year-old struggling to impress. His injury has kept him sidelined since October forcing the Dutch boss to look elsewhere for a midfielder. Meanwhile, Fiorentina loanee Amrabat has not fulfilled the expectations those at United would have hoped for. The Moroccan international did not even feature in the matchday squad for the Red Devils 3-2 victory against Aston Villa. He has now been named in his country’s Afcon squad and could miss a huge chunk of January – perhaps as many as six games.
