Manchester United submit offer to Bayern Munich star

Manchester United have not won a trophy in four seasons now. And they are expected to be looking to bring an end to that streak as soon as possible.

The Red Devils have made a terrific start to the summer transfer window to be honest. They have  already signed Tom Heaton on a free transfer and agreed a deal to bring Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford as well after being linked with the player for years. Raphael Varane is also being heavily linked with a move to the club.

Another area that they could be looking to improve in is the middle of the park. Paul Pogba’s future remains up in the air with just a year left on his current deal while Nemanja Matic is set to turn 33 years of age soon and has been linked with a transfer exit as well.

It looks like the club have their eye on Bayern Munich’s Leon Goretzka, who also has just a year left on his current deal. As reported by Sport Bild (via The Sun), Manchester United have tabled an offer to the German international for him join them when he becomes a free agent in June.

Manchester United linked with Goretzka

Goretzka has been absolutely brilliant for Bayern Munich in recent seasons. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he scored 8 goals and provided 9 assists in 32 appearances. That is very impressive considering he plays in the middle of the park.

Goretzka is also brilliant when it comes to the defensive side of things and there are not many midfielders in the world right now with the combination of qualities that he has. Thus, if the Red Devils are able to sign him, it would be considered as a major coup to say the least.

At 26 years of age, he is also entering his prime as a footballer and might very well be one of the best midfielders in the world for the next several years. As a result, if Goretzka does end up leaving next summer as a free agent, a number of clubs would be expected to be interested in his signature.
