Juventus leading the race for Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo
Juventus target Jean-Clair Todibo from Barcelona to boost their defensive options.
According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media, Juventus are leading the race for Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo.
The France international only joined Barcelona from Toulouse in January 2019 for 1 million euros and his contract runs to June 2023.
The 19-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in France. Jean-Clair Todibo has represented France at Under-20 level, winning 3 caps.
The Barcelona manager does not see him in his plans and would be open to letting him leave.
Maurizio Sarri is looking to shore up his defensive options and Barcelona’s Jean-Clair Todibo happens to be a target.
The France international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Maurizio Sarri wants to target in the winter transfer window.
Todibo would provide a good variety to Juventus’s defense.
According to Football Espana, “Juventus are in pole position to land Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo, according to a report in Calciomercato. Todibo only joined the Catalan giants in January this year, ending a long running contractual dispute with previous club Toulouse in Ligue 1 and has recently been linked to German side Bayer Leverkusen. The 19-year-old has only been involved in four La Liga matches across the calendar years – with two of his three starts coming after the league title was secured last season. He is now demanding more first-team football and looks set to leave on loan or permanently in January, according to separate reports in both Goal and El Mundo Deportivo, who claimed boss Ernesto Valverde preferred young defender Ronald Araujo. After being forced to play with the youth team at Toulouse, following his standoff with the club’s management, he was short of match fitness when he arrived at the Camp Nou but has yet to be granted a run in the first-team.”
