Man Utd make Leicester contact for Fofana

Manchester United have approached Leicester City for Wesley Fofana.

The French defender, 20, has been a revelation for the Foxes this season after signing from Saint Etienne for £36.5million last September.

Foot Mercato says his form hasn't gone unnoticed by Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who would like to partner record-signing Harry Maguire with the France Under-21s international.

The report says that Solskjaer isn't convinced that Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly have the qualities to compliment Maguire at the back.

United are said to have made initial contact with the Leicester ace, but the next step could be complicated.
