Manchester United are interested in Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara but they haven’t made a move for the Frenchman so far, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The Italian journalist was responding to multiple claims that the Red Devils could sign the 22-year-old ahead of the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal, either in January or at the end of the season when his contract expires.
Most fans on Twitter believe that Kamara could well be an excellent addition to the squad, with some even claiming he would be a better signing than West Ham’s Declan Rice:
that would be greatttt

Manager Ralf Rangnick is thought to be keen on reinforcing his options in midfield next month, with RB Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara having also been linked recently.
Kamara would, however, be a cheaper option, considering his contract situation, and the France Under 21 international would, undoubtedly, prove very useful if he is brought in midway through the season to strengthen a key weakness in the first-team squad.
