Man United face competition for Mathys Tel – which Premier League club will lure him away?

Manchester United have made contact towards signing Bayern Munich attacker Mathys Tel this summer, according to Florian Plettenberg.

Tel joined the Bundesliga champions from Ligue 1 club Rennes in 2022 for around €28.5 million on a five-year deal after only a handful of appearances for the first team.

The France youth international became Bayern’s youngest scorer in the Bundesliga and Champions League, establishing himself as a noteworthy talent.

However, the 18-year-old attacker has struggled for game time under manager Thomas Tuchel, with the German coach demanding more consistency.

Tel is reportedly unhappy with his bit-part role for the club and is desperate to play more. He wants to stay at Bayern but will reconsider his options if he does not feel the love.

United are not alone in their pursuit of the Bayern sensation, who has bagged six goals and three assists in only 18 appearances this season.

Tottenham Hotspur will be one of the clubs in for Tel. They asked Bayern about him in the summer transfer window when Harry Kane joined the Rekordmeister. They also reportedly considered a move for him in January.

Spurs would be a lovely landing spot for the Frenchman, fitting in nicely in Ange Postecoglou’s young side. 

Tel would be a long-term replacement for Tottenham skipper Heung-min Son, who is entering the twilight of his career. 

He is a similar attacker to Son, operating as a split forward switching between the left flank and centre-forward roles. 

Timo Werner has not impressed in England since joining Tottenham on loan from RB Leipzig, and Spurs could turn to the Bayern youngster to replace him. 

Brighton & Hove Albion have built a reputation as one of the best talent finders in Europe and could take the punt on him.

The Seagulls will likely not make Ansu Fati’s loan from Barcelona permanent, and Tel might be the perfect replacement. 

He would have the chance to shine away from the spotlight with minimal pressure with the south coast club.
