Manchester United: Fans react to Red Devils interest in Faitout Maouassa - Manchester United

Lots of Manchester United fans have been discussing the news that the Red Devils are monitoring Faitout Maouassa, according to L’Equipe via Sports Witness

Maouassa has put in a string of impressive performances for Stade Rennais FC on the left flank this season, helping Julien Stephan’s side reach third in Ligue 1 before football ground to a premature halt as a result of the ongoing pandemic.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified the versatile youngster as a solid defensive option, and United face stiff competition from Newcastle United, as both Premier League teams are keeping an eye on his progress ahead of a potential transfer battle in the summer.

The 21-year-old has made 23 appearances in the French top flight this campaign, scoring 3 goals, providing 1 assist, averaging 2.2 tackles per game, making 1 interception, and registering 1.9 clearances on average (via WhoScored). His market value is estimated at £7.2m via Transfermarkt, but the report claims Rennes will consider an offer worth more than €12m.

If Ed Woodward manages to sign Maouassa in the upcoming transfer window, the defender will have to contend with the likes of Luke Shaw and United academy graduate Brandon Williams for a place in Solskjaer’s starting lineup next season.

Predictably, plenty of supporters are delighted by the latest “astute” link, with one fan labelling the Frenchman as “underrated.”
