Man United have reportedly made a fresh attempt to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso the World Cup winner, who has struggled to settle at the Allianz Arena.
Tolisso joined Bayern from Lyon in a Bundesliga-record £37million transfer in 2017. He has played a bit-part role in the current campaign but the German giants were unwilling to weaken their midfield depth by letting him leave in January.
Reports say the Red Devils are keen on bringing Tolisso to Old Trafford, this time in a permanent deal this summer in conscious that Paul Pogba is yet to agree a new deal and is linked with a move to Real Madrid and former club Juventus. Tolissob\ being the potential replacement for Pogba. United will hope they can revive the 25-year-old’s career so he can replicate his best form.
In the 2017/18 season, Tolisso won the Bundesliga and scored 10 goals and provided seven assists in 40 appearances across all competitions. However, Man United will need to be convinced of his fitness before formalising their interest, as Tolisso underwent surgery to repair ankle ligaments last month.
The report adds that Bayern will not block Tolisso’s move to the Premier League as they look to finance a deal for Manchester City star Leroy Sane, 24. The Germany winger is a long-term target for Bayern and they are aiming to land him at a bargain price.
