Manchester United tipped for intense battle with Liverpool for Aurelien Tchouameni transfer

The French youngster has been raising eyebrows across Europe.

Manchester United’s biggest weakness this season has been their midfield, so it won’t surprise you to see the club linked with a number of midfielders over the coming months.

Today, we already reported on the Franck Kessie links, and we’ll probably hear something else before the day is over.

Every man and his dog knows Manchester United have a problem to address in midfield.

It existed before the 2021/22 season began and now it rumbles on, causing United fans heartbreak every time they watch their beloved team, but at least it looks like the club will dip into the transfer market this summer.

According to The Athletic, Liverpool and United are keen on 21-year-old AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni. David Ornstein writes: “If Liverpool choose to take their interest further, the battle for his services is likely to be intense.”

A report from 90min has revealed Monaco would demand a transfer fee of around £50 million for the young France international.

Liverpool’s interest cam’t be sniffed at, though — should they make a move, United will be up against stiff competition.
