Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso for £8.5 million.
Tolisso is in the final year of his contract, and Bayern Munich has indicated that he will be allowed to go during the summer transfer window.
Manchester United and Arsenal are battling it out for Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso, who is available for a bargain price. Tolisso joined the Bundesliga champions from Lyon in 2017 for a sum of around £38 million.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
It was a world record for a fee earned by a French club and a Bundesliga record for a fee paid at the time.
His tenure at Bayern has been hindered by ailments, with a cruciate ligament injury keeping him out for the bulk of his second season.
After recuperating from that issue, he was a fixture in Bayern’s lineup, but he was forced to undergo ankle surgery just as the Bundesliga resumed following Germany’s national coronavirus lockdown.
Injuries plagued the Frenchman once again last season, limiting him to just seven league starts due to muscular problems and a ruptured tendon.
He does not appear to be in new Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann’s plans for the season, despite the former RB Leipzig manager making a new midfielder one of his summer priority.
Nagelsmann is interested in signing Marcel Sabizter of Austria, which would push Tolisso lower down the pecking order.
As a result, Bayern Munich is ready to let Tolisso go, despite the fact that he is in the final year of his contract.
The Bundesliga heavyweights had considered renewing his contract, but Nagelsmann’s demands have forced them to sell him in order to bankroll fresh signings.
The German giants had set their asking price at £17 million, but after receiving no offers, they have lowered it.
Bayern Munich are willing to take a sum of just £8.5 million for the 27-year-old, according to German daily Bild, with the goal of getting him off the pay bill as soon as possible.
United and Arsenal are both said to be interested in signing Tolisso and are preparing for a transfer war.
With only three weeks left in the transfer season, the Premier League rivals are both looking to add a midfielder to their squads.
