Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick is putting pressure on the club to snap up RB Leipzig forward Christopher Nkunku this summer, according to reports in Germany.
Rangnick is a big fan of the Frenchman, who has scored 31 goals in all competitions this campaign, and he feels that the player would strengthen the club’s options up front.
Leipzig are, however, reluctant to let Nkunku leave at the end of the season, but they are in a difficult position as they know they won’t be able to ask for a large fee if they keep hold of him for another year.
The 24-year-old’s current deal expires in 2024, so they may be open to letting him leave in the coming months, if United or another club matches their €70m (£59m) valuation.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City, as well as Paris Saint-Germain, have also been linked with Nkunku in recent months so United will have to fight hard to secure the player’s services.
