German DFB Pokal”FC Schalke 04 v Bayern Munchen”

RB Leipzig have reportedly become the latest club to express an interest in Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo, who is currently on loan at Schalke.

The Bundesliga side are expected to lose Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konaté in the summer transfer window and want to bring in Todibo to reinforce their defence.

Todibo is said to fit the profile Leipzig are looking for after proving his worth during his brief time at Schalke, according to Le10 sport.

The report reckons Barcelona really need to sell some stars to pay for Lautaro Martinez and Lionel Messi’s contract renewal.

Todibo is one of the club’s more bankable players and could cost around €30 million.
