Manchester United joined by Premier League rivals in £43m Leon Goretzka transfer 

West Ham has joined Manchester United in the pursuit of Leon Goretzka. As Bayern Munich is reportedly eager to offload him in a £43 million transfer. Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is looking to bolster his midfield options. An area of concern for the club last season. This news comes with the added information that Thomas Tuchel, the former Chelsea manager, is keen to sell the German star. Albeit at the right price, providing a boost to United’s pursuit.

According to reports from Sky Sports in Germany. The ex-Chelsea boss is willing to part ways with Goretzka for approximately £43 million. However, Manchester United will face competition from former United chief David Moyes, who is eyeing the midfielder for West Ham. The Hammers have funds available after Declan Rice’s record-breaking £105 million transfer to Arsenal. They might even have the advantage in terms of financial resources. Considering that United has already spent £60 million to acquire Rice’s childhood friend and England teammate.

Furthermore, goalkeeper Andre Onana’s £47 million move to Old Trafford is set to be completed on Tuesday. While Manchester United continues to vigorously pursue a striker, with Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen, Rasmus Hojlund, and Randal Kolo Muani among their targets.

However, Goretzka’s transfer may not be entirely driven by his own desire. As the treble-winning midfielder reportedly wishes to stay at Bayern Munich. Since joining the Bundesliga champions in 2018. Goretzka has made 179 appearances in all competitions, winning five league titles and one Champions League trophy. Nonetheless, his recent performances have been inconsistent, partly due to a series of frustrating injuries.

Tuchel has already bolstered his Bayern squad this summer. Along with the signings of Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig and Raphael Guerreiro from Borussia Dortmund. Marcel Sabitzer has also returned from his loan spell at Manchester United. While Joshua Kimmich and Ryan Gravenberch are already part of the squad. With the midfield options becoming crowded. Tuchel believes that parting ways with Goretzka would benefit the team, given his previous association with Schalke.
