Man Utd have ‘serious interest’ in signing Olmo, €60m deal can be agreed

Manchester United are one of the clubs in the race to sign RB Leipzig attacker Dani Olmo, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Red Devils are likely to make multiple signings this summer and a versatile forward could be one of the top priorities for manager Erik ten Hag.

Olmo has been linked with United for the past few years and Mundo Deportivo (page 11) claim that they could enter a bidding battle to secure his services.

Barcelona and Bayern Munich are currently keeping tabs on the 25-year-old, but it is reported that United have also shown ‘serious interest’ in him.

Olmo has yet to be convinced over a new contract at Leipzig and he could be signed for the reported €60 million when the transfer window reopens.

United should avoid Olmo due to injury record

The Spain international is one of the best playmakers in the German top-flight. He can play on the left wing, right wing or from the number ten role.

Olmo can also operate from the false number nine position when required. His versatility would make him a quality acquisition for any club.

The attacker has registered eight goals and five assists this season, but he has made only 23 appearances. He has missed 27 games with two short-term injuries.

Olmo was also sidelined for 20 games last season, and the same thing happened in 2021/22.

The Red Devils have had plenty of injuries to key players this term, and they can’t afford another high-profile injury-prone signing.
