According to reports in Germany, Manchester United have made an offer to Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji.

The Switzerland international has caught the eye after a string of good performances in the Bundesliga.

German media outlet BILD via Tribal Football claim Akanji has an ‘offer from United’ in regards to a move at the end of the season.

It is believed the Red Devils have offered the Borussia Dortmund defender a four year contract worth around €15 million per season.

Akanji’s contract with Borussia Dortmund will expire in 2023 and the German side are believed to be demanding a fee of about €30million for the defender.

Borussia Dortmund had wanted the 26 year defender to extend his stay with the German side but his £160,000-a-week demands, double his current salary has been deemed too high for the German side.
