Montpellier’s highly-rated defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has issued a come-and-get-me plea to Manchester United and Arsenal amid speculation he could be set for a move to England.
Yanga-Mbiwa has become an integral part of the Montpellier team since breaking into the side aged just 17 and has gone on to make over 160 appearances for the club.
The 22-year-old is most comfortable at centre back but can play anywhere across the back-line, as well in defensive midfield, and according to the Daily Mail he has attracted interest from Arsenal, Newcastle, Man Utd and Liverpool in recent months.
