Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Rennes full-back Faitout Maouassa, according to L’Equipe.
The 21-year-old defender chalked up 26 appearances in the French top-flight this term and is also capable of playing in the midfield.
The Frenchman helped the club to third place in the Ligue 1 before the COVID-19 pandemic halted play and apparently caught the attention of Manchester United scouts.
The report claims, the 20-time Premier League champions are lining up a move for the versatile full-back at the end of the campaign.
The Red Devils could face fierce competition from Newcastle United, however, with the Magpies potentially are on the verge of a massive £300m Saudi-led takeover.
