Video: “I won’t lie” – Manchester United transfer target responds to Red Devils interest

Rennes youngster Faitout Maouassa has responded to transfer rumours linking him with Manchester United in recent times.

The 21-year-old left-back looks a top talent and when asked about interest from Man Utd in the video below from Telefoot, he admitted it was flattering.

He said: “I don’t let it go to my head. It’s nice, I won’t lie, it’s really nice to see clubs like that be interested in you. It’s just a pleasure, really, but like I said, I’m really happy at Rennes, I feel good and I’m staying grounded.”

Maouassa could be a useful signing at Old Trafford to perhaps provide the club with a long-term replacement for Luke Shaw, who has not developed as many would have hoped.

Brandon Williams looks a decent backup option, but might not be ready to become first choice, with the potential signing of Maouassa perhaps the best solution for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co.
