The Sun reports that Manchester United has an interest in signing Rennes French left-back Faitout Moaussa. Rennes is in third place in Ligue 1 and Frenchman has 3 goals in 32 appearances so far this season. Many clubs are interested in Maoussa who is a versatile player that can play in defence, midfield, or even as a left winger.
The 21-year-old was pursued by Newcastle United. but had a bid rejected by Rennes last year January. But the French club may garner a new interest in him because Rennes could sell Maoussa with a year left on his contract. These are one of the rumours that has come out this week about Manchester United. But this is the first time I have heard of Faitout Moaussa.
His age is an advantage for us and his versatility is a big plus also. Any team would like to have a player like that. But according to many reports Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t interested in a defender, but maybe we can use him as a left-winger, because that is an area we can strengthen. Solskjaer as far I know is looking for a creative midfielder which Moaussa may not be.
We’ll see if Solskjaer pursues Moaussa but honestly I don’t think that he’s one of the players that we’re chasing after. The names that has been linked consistently with United are Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish, James Maddison and Kalidou Koulibaly.
Do you think Manchester United should sign Moaussa? Tell me your thoughts in the comments section.
