Manchester United Defy Milan and Juventus for OM Starlet

Milan and Juventus have been after Olympique Marseille’s Boubacar Kamara for some time, and now they have to deal with a strong foe in Manchester United. Both teams could use a midfielder, but the 22-year-old does not appear to be a viable January target due to his club’s unwillingness to sell. He is on an expiring contract.

Milan, in particular, seriously tracked him last summer. But the French side held firm on their demands, and the Rossoneri brought in Tiemoué Bakayoko instead. The Rossoneri have stayed in touch with the entourage of the youngster. They believe to have good chances to land him on a free transfer in June when they might have to replace Franck Kessié, reports.

On top of Milan, also Juventus and Manchester United are eyeing Kamara for a Bosman move. New interim manager Ralf Rangnick, who will join the front office down the line, is a big fan of the Frenchman. The Red Devils would easily be able to outbid the Italian sides on the wages.

Despite his contractual situation, Kamara has remained a linchpin of the formation under coach Jorge Sampaoli. He has featured in 19 matches so far in all competitions, scoring once. He rejected an extension multiple times, the specialized site adds. The youngster intends to depart at the end of the season to take on a new challenge. He seems content in waiting and is not pushing to depart in the upcoming window. More landing spots will likely emerge as well given his talent.
