£150 million transfer message issued by boss, Man United on alert as target wants to leave Lyon and Absolute superstar wants fresh challenge away from giants
Lewandowski eyes Bayern exit, Haaland message sent and Man United target Aouar wants Lyon exit in top Manchester United news…
The big news coming out of France is that Manchester United target Houssem Aouar could be set to leave Lyon before the window closes.
It is no secret that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a massive fan of Aouar and wanted the board to sanction a transfer move either in the last summer, or the January window, to get a transfer deal done.
Lyon wanted £55million for his signature in the summer, but with Covid hitting the club in the inter window, they did not intend to pay that fee in January either.
However, there has been alot of rumours over the past few months that Aouar wants to leave the French club this summer and with his contract running down, reports have claimed that he could be worth just £17 million this summer
As per RMC Sport, the Frenchman is among multiple players that could be shown the exit door as director of sport Juninho looks to resolve an attitude problem in the dressing room.
Amid the speculation United have been given the green light to try and get a transfer deal done after Lyon boss Peter Bosz recently opened up and admitted that the tricky Frenchman can leave this summer if a big offer comes in
“Aouar? He can leave, this is modern football. Up until the last moment, he can leave,” Bosz told French outlet butfootball.fr.
Look, this is the type of player that United need to be signing in the transfer windows to win back that title, so if the reports are true and they could get him for a bargain they should make a move.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out, but United would be massive fools to not even make a move for the player that would add something different to the squad
Long-term Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski wants a new challenge away from Bayern Munich but the club has valued him at more than £100m.
Lewandowski is one of Europe’s elite goalscorers and has unsurprisingly attracted interest from some of the continent’s biggest clubs over the past few seasons as he continues scoring goals for fun
The 32-year-old striker netted 41 league goals in the 2020/21 season for Bayern to break Gerd Muller’s Bundesliga record, which had stood for 49 years, but there has been alot of speculation regarding the players future
Lewandowski’s Allianz Arena contract runs until 2023. And club chiefs are hopeful he will stay and finish his career at the club, despite seeing head coach Hansi Flick leave.
Sky Sports News has been told Lewandowski, who turns 33 on Saturday, is happy at Bayern but wants to secure a move to another top European club before the age of 35.
The German champions valuation, designed to keep him until the end of his contract in 2023, is likely to price the FIFA & UEFA player of the year out of a departure
The reports adds, The Poland striker is understood to be frustrated by their reluctance to sell, but is unlikely to do anything that will harm his good relationship with the club.
He has already scored three in Bayern’s two opening games including in Super Cup victory against Borussia Dortmund.
Lewandowski may be coming towards the back-end of his playing days, but he still a goal-scoring machine that will cost upwards of £100 million, so if United want to sign a striker that can bang in the goals for the next two years, Lewandowski is their man
So even though Bayern do not want to sell the player right now, the right offer from the Red Devils could get a transfer deal done
Erling Haaland may stay at Borussia Dortmund beyond next summer despite the release clause in his contract, manager Marco Rose has told the likes of Manchester United
It is no secret that Manchester United have been long-term admirers of the Bundesliga hitman and were linked with a transfer move for Haaland at the beginning of the transfer window.
But adding Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho to the squad has meant most of the transfer budget has been taken, and United are not willing to pay that massive £100 million asking price that has been placed on his head.
But the prolific Norwegian striker continuing to generate plenty of rumours after starting the new season with two goals and a couple of assists in a 5-2 mauling of Eintracht Frankfurt, and there is rumours suggesting that United could make one more big transfer offer.
However, it is unlikely that United make a move to sign the striker this transfer window and were probably waiting until next summer, but they have been dealt a blow in their chase once again
“He still has a long-term contract with us. Just because the public is constantly talking about him leaving BVB next summer, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case,” Rose told German outlet SportBILD.
“In the end, Erling has to decide for himself where he sees his future. In any case, we are happy that he is currently playing for us – and, who knows, possibly it’ll be even more than just one season if we write an extraordinary story here.”
Haaland is a world class player that has a big asking price, but it would be a shock to still see him at the German club next summer too
