Man United is linked in a move with Robin Koch’s. As a cheap fall-back option in central defense, Manchester United has reportedly been linked with a deal for Leeds United’s Robin Koch.
In the case of relegation, Koch’s contract is thought to have a provision allowing him to depart on loan without being charged. It appears that some clubs have taken notice of this.
Manchester United is monitoring the German international, according to the Independent (via LeedsLive). They see him as a cheap way to bolster their defense.
Kim Min-Jae is a Napoli center-back who is also a target for the Red Devils, but he is on the verge of joining Bayern Munich. Meanwhile, Harry Maguire might quit the team this summer given that he is now below Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez in the hierarchy.
The 26-year-old Koch can also play both defensive sides and defensive midfield. As a potential successor for the exit-linked Jonathan Tah, Bayer Leverkusen is reportedly interested in bringing him back to Germany, according to journalist Florian Plettenberg.
Koch played his whole professional career in his native country before signing with Leeds in August 2020 for a reported £12 million cost. Since then, he has made 77 appearances for the English squad in various tournaments, including 39 in the most recent season.
Koch is about to approach the final year of his contract, therefore it is unclear how a loan transfer away from Elland Road will affect him.
Mason Mount’s second offer from Manchester United was rejected by Chelsea:
According to reports, Chelsea has turned down Manchester United’s second offer for free-agent midfielder Mason Mount. However, it’s anticipated that talks over his future after the Blues will carry on.
Sky Sports claims that Chelsea turned down a £50 million bid that included a $5 million add-on. The Stamford Bridge organization also rejected their initial offer of £40 million.
The 24-year-old England international is reportedly a target for Erik Ten Hag at Old Trafford. Next month, he will begin the last year of his Chelsea deal.
Mount has been connected with a move at that time, among other clubs. Manchester United, however, appears to be the party most intent on making a deal for the English playmaker.
