Jean-Clair Todibo could be on the move again before the close of the transfer window and may be heading back to France.
The Barcelona center-back left for a loan spell with Benfica in October but has struggled for game time in Portugal and has only managed two appearances so far.
According to various reports, Todibo is now in talks with Nice over a move to the Ligue 1 side for the rest of the 2020-21 season.
French daily newspaper Nice-Matin reckons a deal is so close to being done but probably not in time for Todibo to face St-Etienne on the weekend.
There’s also no mention of whether it will be a loan or a permanent deal, although Barca would probably prefer a sale given their financial situation.
Nice are currently in 12th place in the table and are managed by Adrian Ursea who took over in December after Patrick Vieira was sacked after two and a half years.
