Man United and Paris Saint-Germain are eying Brest midfielder Romain Faivre after his improved and impressive performances in Ligue 1 this season.
The 22-year-old joined Brest from Monaco in July 2020 in a deal worth £400,000 after failing to impress at Stade Louis II.
The business was a shrewd one from the point of view of his current club and is paying off. Romain Faivre has made 19 appearances for Brest in Ligue 1 with 4 goals to his name thus far.
He has caught the eye of big clubs with his performances this season and has also been called up to represent France at the Under-21 level where he has garnered 4 caps and scored 2 goals.
Faivre plays as a left-winger and can also play on both flanks. He has also been deployed as a forward occasionally this season.
According to a report by Le 10 Sport, a good number of clubs are monitoring the player with Manchester United and PSG among the favorites.
Romain Faivre is contracted to Brest until 2024 and the aforementioned clubs won’t have it difficult in securing a deal for him as long as his current club stands to gain a huge profit from any potential sale. Meanwhile, Brest currently sit 11th in Ligue 1.
The Red Devils are not expected to be busy in the January transfer window with departures more likely than new arrivals.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is willing to let go of the likes of Sergio Romero and Marcus Rojo this month as their contracts expire in the summer with no extensions in view.
Solskjaer said on Friday: ‘Both of them have contracts until the summer and they’re not going to be extended,’
‘We’re looking for them to find clubs. ‘Marcos has been given time to go home so he’s still in Argentina. Sergio has been back home as well to see his family but he’s back in England now.
‘They are professionals, they are working hard. They are ready if they are called in for us. Of course, Marcos would have to travel and quarantine before [he plays for United again].’
