If reports in the media are anything to go by then Man Utd are willing to sign Lois Openda from RB Leipzig.
According to an exclusive story covered by TEAMtalk, the Red Devils are eager to lure the Belgian international, who has been in top form this season.
The news source claim Openda’s current deal has a release clause worth £70million, valid from 2025 and suitors will have to pay a big fee to sign him earlier.
Last weekend, The Sunday Mirror revealed Man Utd could press to sign the 23-year-old center forward, who joined Leipzig for £35million and is now valued at around £75million.
Since moving to Germany, the 14-capped forward has netted 10 goals in 14 appearances in the Bundesliga.
Moreover, he has scored 4 goals in 5 starts in the Champions League to help Leipzig earn a place in the KO stages of the competition.
Manchester United are out of the Champions League and based on their current Premier League position and form, it is highly likely they will not be able to qualify for the Europe’s premier competition next season.
Erik ten Hag badly needs to reinforce the squad but must also take the blame for the choices he made in the summer transfer window.
The Old Trafford club paid £72million to sign Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta and the Danish center forward is yet to find the net in the Premier League after making 12 appearances.
Martial has been out of form as well and as per TEAMtalk, the French international will be allowed to leave and Man Utd want Openda to reinforce the strike-force.
