Over the past few months, MANCHESTER UNITED has reportedly expressed interest in signing Christopher Nkunku.
Christopher Nkunku is reportedly close to signing a new contract with RB Leipzig, which appears to have seriously hurt Manchester United’s chances of luring him to Old Trafford. As Erik ten Hag attempts to reassemble his playing team prior to the start of the upcoming Premier League season, it is widely anticipated that the Red Devils would spend significantly over the course of this summer.
Nkunku, who has developed as one of Europe’s brightest talents during his time at Leipzig, has recently been credited with wanting to join United. The player is expected to extend his stay in the Bundesliga in the upcoming weeks, so it appears that any move for his services will have to wait.
Nkunku is reportedly ready to sign a better contract with Leipzig that might deter any prospective bidders, according to GGFN’s report on Thursday’s print edition of Kicker. A new release clause in his planned deal, which is expected to be worth more than £51 million and take effect in 2023, will also come with a nice wage increase.
Due to his significance to Leipzig’s intentions for the future season, it is also said that Nkunku will not be permitted to leave the team under any circumstances before the start of the following campaign. The circumstances are likely to require United to shift their attention to other targets in order to strengthen their attacking ranks over the next weeks and months.
