Man Utd have ‘started’ move to sign Olmo from RB Leipzig

Manchester United have stepped up their interest in signing RB Leipzig playmaker Dani Olmo, according to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo (page 4).

The Red Devils will likely make multiple changes to their squad this summer. A new attacking player could be one of the priorities ahead of next season.

Olmo has been linked with United for the past few years, and the club have reportedly ‘started to move’ for his services this summer.

The Spain international has a release clause worth €60 million (£51m) in his contract. The buy-out clause will not expire until the mid-July.

United should avoid move for Olmo

Olmo had a good season with Leipzig, registering eight goals and five assists from 25 appearances from the wide attacking positions.

The £156,000 per week star also has the ability to operate from the number ten or false nine role, but the Red Devils should not consider an approach.

The 26-year-old has been injury-prone since his move to Leipzig. He missed 29 games for club and country with injuries this season.

This was similar to the previous two campaigns. The La Masia graduate was sidelined for 20 games in 2022/23 and missed another 19 matches in 2021/22.

With his poor injury record, United should avoid an approach. The club have had plenty of injury concerns to deal with and should stay away from an injury-prone player.

Olmo has impressed with his high pressing and ability to create big chances, but he would be a risky signing, particularly with the huge outlay and his fitness issues.
