Manchester United

Real Madrid star Antonio Rudiger confirmed His £30m international teammate have agreed personal terms with Man United – DONE DEAL

According to Kicker, Manchester United is interested in acquiring Jonathan Tah, a star for Bayer Leverkusen, before the January transfer window opens.

The Red Devils, who are currently bottom of their Champions League group and sixth in the Premier League, have had a challenging season by their high standards.

With 38 goals conceded across all competitions, their defensive performance has been concerning, and there are rumors that United may try to bolster their defense this winter.

Tah, who has been essential to Bayer Leverkusen’s successful start in the Bundesliga, is reportedly the target of the club, according to Kicker, who also claims that a new center-back will likely be sought.

But it seems hard to pull off a deal in January. The German’s contract contains a €18 million release clause, but it won’t start to play until the summer.

As a result, United might need to make a sizable offer to convince Leverkusen to sell, but Xabi Alonso’s team might object because they are getting ready to lose important players in the first part of January.

Odilon Kossounou and Edmond Tapsoba make up two of Leverkusen’s back three right now. At the beginning of the year, they are anticipated to be abroad for the African Cup of Nations.

Tah is unlikely to sign with United in January.
Due to their current financial circumstances, the Red Devils will probably look into cheap deals when the transfer window reopens at the start of 2024.

Serhou Guirassy, a striker for Stuttgart, has a low €18 million release clause that will be activated in the upcoming transfer window, making him a possible target for the team.

With Tah, things are not the same. Because his clause does not go into effect until July 1, Leverkusen will likely be able to hold onto him until the end of the campaign.

With his physical presence and strong distribution skills, Tah would be a good addition in January, but we don’t see Leverkusen cutting ties with him.

The team would prefer to avoid undermining their defense while chasing the championship, as they are currently four points ahead of Bayern Munich in the standings.

Although Tah has expressed a “fundamental desire” to join the Red Devils in the Premier League and move to England, they might have to wait until the summer to sign him.
