Manchester United continue to have RB Leipzig’s Castello Lukeba on their radar, according to Bild.
The Bundesliga side signed the 20-year-old from Lyon in the last window and prior to that, the Red Devils had looked at him.
Despite the summer disappointment, Erik ten Hag’s side haven’t forgotten about the centre-back.
It’s claimed Manchester United are still interested in the player and want to bring him to Old Trafford.
Lukeba’s deal lasts until 2028 and the report makes no mention of a price tag or a release clause. That’s because they state it’s ‘almost impossible’ for Manchester United or any other club to take him away from the German club next summer.
Leipzig see the Frenchman as an integral part of their future plans and believe that he can continue to develop.
Lukeba has made 16 appearances this season and his displays for Leipzig helped him make his debut for France during October’s international break. He’s currently with the France U21 squad, preparing for the upcoming matches against Austria and South Korea.
