Man Utd boosted by Bayern ‘complications’ over star Rangnick loves | Football | Sport

Manchester United have been handed a boost in their pursuit of RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku as Bayern Munich have reportedly been priced out of a move. The Bundesliga giants are said to be monitoring the French forward, however, accept they won’t be able to fund a deal unless they sell players first.

Nkunku has enjoyed a phenomenal season with Leipzig, netting 26 goals and registering 15 assists in across 39 appearances, including seven strikes in six Champions League outings. The 24-year-old’s exploits this campaign haven’t gone unnoticed as he’s caught the eye of a number of top teams from across the continent.

United have been the most heavily linked Premier League side as they appear set to continue their rebuild this summer. However, the Red Devils face stiff competition from elsewhere, with Leipzig’s Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich another side heavily touted to make a move for the forward.

Despite their strong links, it seems Bayern have worked to do if they are to add Nkunku to their ranks this summer. According to BILD, the reigning Bundesliga champions are keen to add Nkunku to their forward line, but currently deem the player too expensive.
