Manchester United target to leave Lille

Manchester United target Nicolas Pepe will leave Lille in the next transfer window this according to Coach Christophe Galtier.

Pepe has been in outstanding form for Lille this season, scoring 22 league goals from 37 appearances as Galtier's side secured a second-place finish and the coach admitted they have little choice but to cash in on the 23-year-old.

"Nicolas Pepe will leave. Life's like that, football's like that today," Galtier told Canal+. "He is a player of the highest level who will have a big decision to make on the choice of his next club.

"There will be a battle between the great European teams. I hope that he will take a good amount of time to think about it, do his research."


Pepe scored twice in Lille's 5-0 win over his former club Angers on Saturday.

Apart from United, Liverpool is believed to be following the progress of the winger though Paris Saint-Germain is also reportedly eager to sign the Ivory Coast international.

United are in for players they will believe will revamp their squad with a chunk of players expected to leave the side due to lack of Champions League football something bookmakers feel gives Liverpool and PSG an edge over the Solskjaer side.
