Manchester United have been linked with German international and Bayern Munich star, Leon Goretzka, for some time and the latest reports are intriguing.
A few days ago, we covered a story via AZ claiming the Red Devils want to hire the services of the midfielder in the summer transfer window.
More recently, reports coming from Spain indicate the Old Trafford club would face no competition to lure the 28-year-old star.
According to Catalan source, Nacional, Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, has been interested in luring Goretzka but there are two major obstacles why he has given up.
First, the Los Blancos do not want to pay the asking fee of 65 million euros (£56.2million) keeping in view they will have to splash a lot of cash for Mbappe.
Moreover, even manager, Carlo Ancelotti, is not so keen on securing the Kaiser as he has got ample quality and depth in the center of the park.
So, the former Bochum midfielder has to look at other options and United convince him.
The media outlet claim Man Utd are prepared to bet very hard to bring Goretzka to Old Trafford.
Erik Ten Hag has asked the management to make an effort for the experienced and decorated star and pay whatever is needed to get his signing done.
United did not make Sabitzer’s loan move permanent, on the other hand, Eriksen is past his prime. They did secure the signing of Mason Mount but the England international has had an average pre-season thus far.
The former Chelsea attacker missed an absolute sitter earlier in the day against French side, Lens. So, creativity in the center should be improved.
Have your say – Should Man Utd bid £56.2million to sign Leon Goretzka?
