Manchester United will allegedly have to activate a £34 million release clause if they wish to land Konrad Laimer from the Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

The 24-year-old star has been an important player for Die Roten Bullen this season, scoring five times and registering six assists in 41 matches across all competitions.

However, he has just over 12 months remaining on his deal at the Red Bull Arena, which is said to have alerted a host of top European clubs, including the Red Devils.

According to a fresh report from Bild, via the Daily Mirror, the Germans will only accept his departure this summer if his £34 million clause is activated.

The 20-time English champions may face competition to snap up the Austria international as the likes of Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have also been touted with an interest.

The club are also keen to ward off interest in star forward Christopher Nkunku – another star who has been linked with Ralf Rangnick’s side – with senior figure Oliver Mintzlaff recently stating that the France international will not be sold in the summer.


Meantime, Manchester United star Paul Pogba has allegedly been offered a £160,000 per week contract to return to the Serie A giants Juventus on a free transfer.
