Manchester United are prepared to offer a bumper wage package to sign Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji this summer.
The Red Devils have endured a tough campaign in the Premier League, and they are currently fifth in the standings.
They face the possibility of missing out on Champions League football, but plans are already underway for the summer.
A central defender appears one of the top priorities for the club amid the average displays of Harry Maguire this term.
Akanji has been regularly linked. It is now claimed that they are willing to offer him £240,000-a-week to join this summer.
The Swiss’ current deal with Dortmund expires in June 2023. Dortmund are prepared to sanction his sale for around £20m.
United don’t face any competition at the moment, but there is bound to be interest ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
Bayern have signed several Dortmund players in the past, and they could yet enter the pursuit of the central defender.
