MANCHESTER UNITED - set to make a new contract offer to Manuel Akanji
Manchester United have reportedly offered Manuel Akanji €15m in wages as he dreams of a Premier League move. Reds offer double his current contract at Dortmund.The defender's future is up in the air with his current contract expiring in 2023.
With just over a year remaining on his current deal at Borussia Dortmund, it becomes natural that many clubs are looking to secure him in the upcoming summer transfer window. The Sun two days ago told Akanji could turn down United to stay at Dortmund if the Red Devils fail to qualify for the Champions League, and they failed. Man United failure to qualify for the Champions League for next season could force the defender to negotiate a contract with the German club. But Akanji is said to be demanding £160,000 a week from Dortmund to stay, which could price them out.
