With Cristiano Ronaldo reaching the end of his career, Manchester United have to start planning for their life without him. Diallo is a 26-year-old striker who has had an impressive season so far.
Diallo signed a five-year-deal at the French club in 2020, so it might take a hefty transfer fee to prise him away.
Manchester United will face competition from other clubs for the striker, and the likes of Everton and Nice may be able to offer him first-team footballer immediately.
Everton in particular may have to sell Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison this summer due to financial difficulties, so a move for Diallo may be lined up as a replacement.
