Manchester United could have the opportunity to occupy a strong position for the RB Leipzig transfer as they claim Liverpool’s interest may not be as strong as previously reported.
The Red Devils have also been linked with Konate in a potential £ 34million transfer from Eurosport recently, but the young Frenchman’s move to Liverpool seemed quite advanced, with RMC Sport claiming he had suffered damage before. medical tests before moving to Anfield.
However, in a somewhat surprising development, it appears Liverpool have informed Leipzig that they will not be suing Konate after all, according to Bild, as translated by the Daily Express.
The Reds need a center-back this summer and Konate looks ideal, so it’s unclear why they seem to have changed their minds about the signing.
After a nightmarish rear injury campaign, LFC surely need to make some changes in this department, so they may have another target in mind.
Man Utd could also do with a new center-back signing, with Konate surely an upgrade on the likes of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
If Liverpool have ended their interest it could be big news for United and a chance to secure a superb signing without so much competition.
