The rumours linking RB Leipzig attacking midfielder Christopher Nkunku with a Manchester United move continue to be frequent, with claims from both the German and the French media talking about this chase.
On Wednesday morning, it was Bild who talked about the Red Devils’ interest in the player. It was claimed that interim manager Ralf Rangnick was the one who ‘recommended’ the signing to the club’s board.
More claims on this pursuit can be found in L’Equipe, who feature a long story on the 24-year-old’s future.
Their article claims that even though RB Leipzig would like to keep the player and build a team around him, his agent Pini Zahazi is actually expected to push for a move.
So when listing the ‘top contenders’, there’s of course a mention of Manchester United. Rangnick is once again named, with the report claiming the manager was ‘surprised’ that the Red Devils’ recruiters ‘had not identified’ Nkunku as a target.
That’s now said to be done, with the exchanges for a move ‘multiplying’. The Old Trafford side, however, would need to spend big on the signing, as the signs from RB Leipzig say even €100m wouldn’t be enough to get the midfielder this summer.
