According to Sport1 via Metro, Ryan Gravenberch has asked to leave Bayern Munich this week following interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.

The 21 year old midfielder joined Bayern Munich from Ajax last summer in a deal worth €18.5 million (£16m) but was unable to secure a regular role in his first season in Germany.

Gravenberch’s management team have told Bayern that the midfielder wants to leave the club before the transfer window closes.

Manchester United and Liverpool have held talks with the representatives of Gravenberch.

The report also adds that Bayern have not received a concrete offer for the Netherlands international but the Bundesliga champions are now open to a deal having previously ruled out a move earlier this summer.

Bayern are also exploring the possibility of signing Scott McTominay, which could open the door for Gravenberch to move in the opposite direction to Old Trafford.
