Manchester United ‘first and foremost’ – claims the Reds are still ‘interested’ in midfielder, playing ‘attracted’ to PL

Manchester United remain ‘interested’ in RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo, although he does not have an exit clause in his current contract.

This is what SportBILD says, which explains that the Spaniard is one of the few players in the club who does not have buy-out clauses in his current agreement.

They cover the situation in the German club today and describe how different first-team stars have different clauses in their contracts to ensure that they can use the club as a ‘springboard’ in the future.

Leipzig’s stars are interested in them from all over Europe, and when it comes to Olmo, Manchester United is ‘primarily’ during.

Olmo are reportedly considering moving away from Leipzig if they miss the Champions League this season, which is a clear possibility as they are currently 5th in the Bundesliga table at the moment.

There is only one point that separates them from the top four and there is plenty of season left, but the thought is there in Olmo’s mind in both ways.

Barcelona are one of those known to be interested and the Catalans want to loan the midfielder to January and then pick him up permanently next summer.

But so is Olmo ‘attracted’ to the Premier League, where the big clubs are interested in him, ‘primarily’ Manchester United.

Whether Leipzig will let him go is another matter and any club that wants him will have to negotiate a transfer fee as Olmo does not have a release clause in his current contract.

So Manchester United have work to do, even though we find the idea that they are interested, hard to believe the truth.

That idea has been rejected on more than one occasion over the last few weeks and there really is no room in their current squad for the Spaniard.

In Spain, meanwhile, it has been made clear that there is only Barcelona in the battle for Olmo, where Manchester United are never really mentioned, not even as competition.

If anything, it feels like an attempt by the German press to hype the situation and get Barcelona started, maybe even spend money in January, which they either do not want or simply do not have.
