RB Leipzig set hefty price tag for Manchester United target

RB Leipzig set a high price for Manchester United's target

German club RB Leipzig has warned it would cost Manchester United around £54m if they wanted to sack free-scorer Christopher Nkunko from the club and move him to Old Trafford this summer.

Manchester United are in desperate need of offensive reinforcements this summer, with Cristiano Ronaldo now 37, Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani set to go free at the end of the season, and question marks over the futures of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. .

With incoming coach Eric Ten Hag favoring a system similar to the high pressure offered by RB Leipzig, and Ralf Rangnick’s ties to the club, Nkunku’s move makes sense even before considering his impressive season.

The Frenchman, who made his debut for his country this season, scored 30 goals and provided 19 assists in 44 games across all competitions for his team, while his versatility made him play on either wing, as a number 10, or as a striker. .

Can this step be done?

In theory, yes. But the German outlet Build He suggests that even if the required fee is met, crossing the line can be difficult. They suggest this because his two matches with the national team do not qualify him as a senior foreigner, which means approval from the Premier League’s governing body would be required.

In addition, there are question marks about the security of his position in the French team led by Didier Deschamps, and whether a move to Manchester United just three months before the World Cup will enhance his progress or hinder his progress Les blues. Given Jadon Sancho’s plight, it could be the last.

However, at £54m, for Manchester United, such a move would make sense, provided they can impress the player.
