Man Utd can only land Rangnick favorite Nkunku for ‘mega’ transfer offer as RB Leipzig set huge asking price

MANCHESTER UNITED target Christopher Nkunku will only be available for a “mega” transfer offer this summer, according to reports.

The RB Leipzig star is a favorite of Red Devils interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who would love to bring him to Old Trafford in the summer.

The German side are determined to keep their attacking midfielder, however, and will make it difficult for Man United to prise him away.

RB Leipzig are planning on having a quiet summer, with club chiefs not expecting much in the form of incomings or outgoings.

With regards to Nkunku, club CEO Oliver Mintzlaff, a former Rangnick advisor, recently promised: “He will also play with us next season.”

Bild claim that after that proclamation, it would now take a “mega” bid to risk Mintzlaff “losing face” and selling.

They reckon it would take a bid of more than £ 55million to land Nkunku this summer.

The French international will have two years remaining on his RB Leipzig contract.

Nkunku has drawn attention with his incredible goalscoring exploits this term.

He has bagged 30 goals in all competitions to date, also laying on 19 assists.

His efforts include a Champions League hat-trick against Manchester City at the Etihad.

Nkunku was added to United’s summer shortlist following Rangnick’s arrival.

And the Red Devils reportedly sent a scout to watch him in action against Atalanta in the Europa League last Thursday.

Nkunku scored twice in that match to seal his side’s place in the competition’s last four.
