Manchester United are one of many Premier League clubs linked with RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg in the summer, as reported in this week’s edition of SportBild (cited by Sport Witness).
The Sweden international reportedly wants a fresh challenge and wants a move to the Premier League.
At 28-years-old with a year remaining on his contract, the pice being touted is €20m, which wouldn’t be a problem for United if our interest is genuine.
Tottenham, Arsenal, Leicester City and Everton are all listed as interested parties, but it just sounds like Forsberg is being offered around to Premier League clubs.
Forsberg can play on the left and in attacking midfield, however, that’s not really an area United need to worry about this summer. So long as Marcus Rashford is back fit for the start of next season.
There is need for investment on the right flank which is a role we’d like to see occupied by Borussia Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho, who is a real star destined for a transfer in the coming months.
We don’t think much about these reports linking Forsberg to United.
