MANCHESTER UNITED are closing in on the signing of Monaco right-back Djibril Sidibe.

Talks are scheduled between the two clubs over a deal which will see the French move to Old Trafford.

According to the experts it is simply a matter of time until Sidibe, 25, become a United player. United manager Jose Mourinho is said to have begun negotiations over this particular transfer in April.

Sidibe joined Ligue 1 side Monaco from Lille in 2016 for repotedly £13million. Right back Djibril Sidibe has been named in Didier Deschamps’ France squad for the Russia world cup 2018.

Antonio Valencia is Manchester United’s No.1 right-back right now. But the French club will likely to charge a hefty fee for the versatile full-back. He has played on both wings this season. After selling defender Ben Mendy was sold to Manchester City for £52m.

United have identified both full-back positions as areas of their weakness. Antonio Valencia has been Mourinho’s No.1 pick at right-back but at 32 he probably needs a change as well. Backup Matteo Darmian looks set to leave as Juventus is keen to sign him.

It is believed the French club will demand more than £52million, what Manchester City paid for Benjamin Mendy last summer.

Defence remains a priority for Mourinho in the summer as Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind and Luke Shaw are all expected to leave and at almost 33, Antonio Valencia is nearing the end of his career.

In other defender-related transfer news Celtic defender Kieran Tierney, who has been scouted by United, has refused to rule out a potential move in the future.

The 20-year-old has won three Scottish Premier League titles, the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Cup since breaking into the first team and insists he is happy at the club.
