Manchester United have already signed a creative midfielder in the form of Mason Mount this summer, still, they want to further improve things in the center of the park.
As per today’s version of Abendzeitung (news image provided below), Man Utd want to sign Bayern Munich midfielder, Leon Goretzka.
Lately, Joshua Kimmich claimed “it is inconceivable that Leon will leave the club”. However, the German news source have mentioned the Bavarians could end up selling the 28-year-old in the current transfer window.
AZ report Thomas Tuchel prefers Kimmich and new signing, Konrad Laimer, in the center of the park and therefore, Goretzka’s role will be limited if he stays.
In the three pre-season games the Bundesliga champions have played so far, the former Schalke player has only featured from the bench.
Man Utd have been linked with the Kaiser for some time. Last month, Sky Sports reported that even after luring Mount, they are interested in signing Goretzka, who could be lured for a fee of around £34m-£43m (40-50 million euros).
His current contract at the Allianz Arena will expire in the summer of 2026.
The 53-capped international has won every major prize with Bayern Munich, including five league titles and a Champions League.
Last season, he featured in 40 games in all competitions for the German giants, and directly contributed in 12 goals (6 goals and 6 assists).
In your view, should Man Utd bid £34m-£43m to sign Leon Goretzka?
