Manchester United manager José Mourinho might be the next Premier League manager to confirm another signing before the start of the upcoming World Cup in Russia as Augsburg defender Philip Max revealed his desire to play for the Premier League giants next season.
The Red Devils were without a natural left-back throughout last season, though, Ashley Young’s versatility makes it possible for the Englishman to play at the position despite being a natural.
According to a source close to the Augsburg defender, the Bundesliga side are demanding for €40m from United if they must complete their desperate move for his services.
According to the source, Max is ready to move out of Bundesliga this summer, hoping to achieve his dreams of playing for the 20-time Premier League Champions.
Max was awesome for his club throughout last term. He was able to find the back of the net on two occasions, while he made an impressive 13 assists despite playing in deep half of the pitch.
Many would have thought that his Mouthwatering performances for Augsburg are enough to earn him a place in Joachim Low’s World Cup squad but the 24-year-old was surprisingly left out of Germany’s star-studded team to the tournament in Russia.
With this report, Mourinho might need to cool his interest in Tottenham’s out of favor defender Toby Alderweireld, who is reportedly valued at £70m by the North London club.
