Manchester United ready to go head-to-head with Real Madrid for Leipzig’s ace Olmo


Manchester United are reportedly preparing for a transfer battle with Real Madrid for RB Leipzig star Dani Olmo as per the report in TRANSFERmarketWEB

The 23-years-old joined the Bundesliga side back in January 2020 from Dinamo Zagreb for around €20 million. The midfielder enjoyed a promising campaign last term, scoring five goals and assisting nine times in 32 league appearances. He also played a key role for the Spanish national side over the summer that reached the semi-final of the European Championship. 

According to the report, Manchester United are ready to go head-to-head with La Liga giants Real Madrid for Leipzig’s ace Dani Olmo. La Masía graduate was also linked with a return to Barcelona towards the back end of the transfer window, but the deal never materialised. 

After knowing the interest from the European giants, Die Roten Bullen have increased the Spaniard’s asking price and have set a whopping €70 million price tag on their star man. So, it will not be easy for either of those clubs to sign the 23-years-old in the upcoming transfer window. 

Manchester United and Real Madrid ready to battle for Olmo:

Signing Olmo will increase the attacking options for both Manchester United and Real Madrid. However, the Red Devils have enough firepower in their attacking department, after signing Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo this summer. Apart from them, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also have Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Donny Van de Beek at their disposal. 

On the other hand, the 23-years-old could be a very good addition to Real Madrid’s midfield position. With Luka Modric already reaching the wrong end of his career, Los Blancos might need a new creative midfielder and the Spaniard could be an apt replacement for the Croatian. 

Despite attracting interest from the European giants, Olmo should stay at the Bundesliga side and develop his career further. The midfielder has showcased his talent in the German league, however, he still needs plenty of time to flourish. At this point, he will struggle to find regular action at either of those aforementioned clubs. So, staying at Leipzig will be the right decision for the Spaniard.
