Man United join Bayern Munich in race to sign €60million Euros 2024 Finalist with 5-goals/assists



Man United join Bayern Munich in race to sign €60million Euros 2024 Finalist with 5-goals/assists

Manchester United and Bayern Munich are both interested in signing Spain international and RB Leipzig star Dani Olmo this summer according to FootballTransfers.

Man Utd and Bayern are reportedly interested in signing Olmo, and the Red Devils have even held talks as they pursue a high-profile acquisition.

Olmo has previously drawn interest from Chelsea and Manchester City, but a transfer to Stamford Bridge or the Etihad Stadium now seems unlikely.

The Spain international scored four goals and provided five assists in 21 Bundesliga appearances last season, and he has been linked with numerous top European clubs over the past few months.

Olmo has three years left on his current Leipzig deal after signing a contract extension last June.

Bayern have already signed Crystal Palace star Michael Olise so far this summer, while Man Utd have Bruno Fernandes and Mason Mount as options in the no. 10 position.

However, both clubs are heavily interested in pursuing a deal for Olmo.

The former Barcelona academy graduate has a €60 million release clause included in his Leipzig contract, although this is only active until 20 July.

As a result, interest is expected to ramp up following the conclusion of Euro 2024.

Olmo has spent the past four-and-a-half years with RB Leipzig, following a €29m move from Dinamo Zagreb in January 2020. The Spaniard has 29 goals and 34 assists in 148 appearances for the Bundesliga club.

He was initially a back-up option to Pedri, but he starred off the bench against Germany and played a key role as Spain beat France to reach the final.

The 26-year-old has three goals and two assists during the tournament and is the leading contender to win the Golden Boot award on Sunday
