Manchester United have agreed personal terms with Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, according to reports.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has previously said that both United and Manchester City had made enquiries for the player, although Tottenham are known to have been scouting the 22-year-old since the 2017-18 season – viewing him as a long-term replacement for Mousa Dembele.

Ndombele joined Lyon from Amiens in August 2017 on an initial loan deal and impressed hugely during his debut campaign, racking up 50 appearances in all competitions.

He recently spoke out about interest from England – seemingly confirming Spurs are after him but opening the door for other ‘big clubs’.

And now Soccer Link (via Sport Witness) claims that United have come to a ‘contractual agreement’ with the midfielder, while Juventus have done likewise.

The Red Devils are also understood to have ‘formulated’ a €60m bid but Lyon are looking for an offer closer to €90m, meaning United‘s bid will ‘not be sufficient’.

The report adds that Ndombele will not try and force a move away from the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, which means any potential suitors will have to get closer to Lyon’s asking price.
