Man Utd told to go higher for Monaco defender Badiashile after first bid

Manchester United have failed with an opening offer for AS Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile.

The £22.4million offer has been knocked back by the Ligue 1 side, while French media report that it would take an offer similar to that that helped Anthony Martial part ways with the club five years ago, to prize Badiashile from their clutches.

Telefoot reporter Julien Maynard tweeted: “Leverkusen and Manchester United continue negotiations for Benoit Badiashile.

“Listening, Monaco could decide to keep its defender, who likes Niko Kovac a lot.

“Meeting between Oleg Petrov and the player's advisers scheduled for next week."
