Manchester United Considering signing RB Leipzig Playmaker Dani Olmo

Manchester United is allegedly interested in signing Dani Olmo from RB Leipzig. According to Marca, the Red Devils are among the clubs interested in signing the Spanish playmaker, along with Barcelona, Juventus, and Bayern Munich.

Olmo was supposed to transfer to Barcelona this summer, but the deal fell through. According to Marca, Leipzig was unable to locate a suitable alternative and hence chose not to sell the player. This was a significant setback for the Spanish giants, who saw him as the ideal replacement for Antoine Greizmann.

Barcelona is expected to pursue the Spaniard during the winter transfer window or next summer, but will likely face stiff competition from other big European clubs.

The linkages appear to be a bit far-fetched from the perspective of Man United. Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, and Donny Van de Beek all play in the same attacking position for the club.

Furthermore, Olmo would expect a high fee, which United would like to spend on a priority position, such as a defensive midfielder.

If United intends to sell Donny Van de Beek and Anthony Martial next summer, though, Olmo may be a feasible choice.

The 23-year-old is a dangerous attacking midfielder with the ability to play on either flank. He would provide a fresh aspect to United's assault by being elegant on the ball.

He is a name to keep an eye on next summer.
