RB Leipzig playmaker Dani Olmo is considering moving to this summer , which will reportedly put the likes of Manchester United on full alert for the summer

The 25-year-old Spain international is continuing to excel at Red Bull Leipzig and has a clause that becomes active this summer when he can leave for £52million.

Olmo signed a new contract last June which runs until 2027 but the clause means a number of suitors are now assessing whether he could fit into their plans for the summer.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham are also among the clubs who continue to keep an eye on Olmo’s progress, particularly with his ability to play on either flank or off the striker.

It is no secret that Manchester United are in need of adding to that squad in the summer – as they failed to make it back into the Champions League and only managed to get back into Europe via that FA Cup win over Man City.

Speaking in his column for CaughtOffside, German journalist Christian Falk recently claimed that Olmo is interested in a move to England: “Olmo is currently looking at England. His release clause would not be a hurdle for the rich Premier League clubs. The hottest lead at the moment leads to Manchester City. Olmo is on the list at the Sheikh Club.”

He later went on to add: “But City has competition: Tottenham also has their eye on Olmo, as do Manchester United and Chelsea. However, both clubs would probably not be a good choice at the moment due to their sporting imbalance.”

There are some big names chasing the young man – he really is a quality player that is just about to come into his prime – it would be a wise decision from Man United to get a deal done.

£51 million is not alot of money to spend on a player these days in football – and considering Manchester United are missing someone like Olmo in that side – there is easily some space for him to shine.
