Manchester United have ‘called’ Bayern Munich regarding the situation of midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Liverpool have also done the same, but the midfielder is keen on joining the Red Devils if he is available this summer. Bayern are not thought to be interested in selling the young midfielder, but would be open to a loan.
Two key factors would suggest that United would be a more favourable move for Gravenberch than Liverpool. The first is that relations between Bayern and United are at a good level right now. The Red Devils brought in midfielder Marcel Sabitzer on a loan move last season with an option to buy – which United did not take them up on. The second factor is that Gravenberch is no stranger to Ten Hag. Having previously played for him at Ajax, the integration period would probably be minimal knowing that Ten Hag knows where the player would fit in his system.
The player is reportedly keen on the move too, much like Sofyan Amrabat. The signing of Gravenberch would provide much depth to the midfield. With United being cautious over transfer fees, a loan would in fact suit them and offer a no-risk, no-reward type of deal for a player low on confidence at playing time at the Bavarian side.
