According to a recently report in the German media, the Champions League winner ‘dreams’ of playing for Manchester United one day.
There was a time when almost every player in the world wanted to play for Manchester United. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, the club achieved great success and as a result managed
But over the years, the game has changed. And with that, so has the position of the Red Devils in world football. Once the best team in the world, these days it is considered a success for the club to even make the top four in the Premier League.
United might have lost some of their glorious aura and not won an abundance of trophies in recent years. Yet, there are still world-class players dreaming of playing for the Red Devils.
According to reports from BILD’s German journalist, Christian Falk, Bayern Munich defender Niklas Süle aspires to play for Manchester United one day.

On the other hand, United have long been in the search for a solid centre-back. Since they signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City for a record-breaking transfer fee in the summer of 2019, they have not brought in another centre-back but clearly need one. Despite several reports linking them to the likes of Pau Torres, Nathan Ake and Dayot Upamecano, the central defensive department has remained unaltered.
On the other hand, Süle sustained three different injuries in the 2019-20 season and missed around 35 games across all competitions but he played a part in the UEFA Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain, helping the German club secure their 6th title.
Manchester United tried to get a move done for the 25-year-old defender in 2019. But the German champions were not ready to let him go at that point of time. But now there is a general belief that the Red Devils could get a deal over the line if they are prepared to pay a transfer fee in the region of £50 million.
