Manchester United Open talks to Sign Bayern Munich Midfielder Corentin Tolisso

Corentin Tolisso of FC Bayern Muenchen plays the ball during a training session at Saebener Strasse training ground on March 13, 2020 in Munich, Germany.

Per a new report, it appears that Bayern Munich has given midfielder Corentin Tolisso permission to leave the club during the next transfer window. 

The French international has been linked with a move away from Munich for the better part of the Ruckrunde since he’s only made a total of 13 Bundesliga appearances after missing almost all of the 2018/2019 season due to his cruciate ligament tear.

Inter Milan, Juventus, Arsenal, and Manchester United have all shown interest at one point or another in acquiring Tolisso, but now it looks as if Bayern’s front office has given him the green light to definitely leave if he wants to. 

RMC Sport’s Mohamed Bouhafsi reported earlier that both Inter and Manchester United had expressed the most interest in shelling out at least €35m for Tolisso, whose contract runs through June 2022.

Bouhafsi also reported that Manchester United has already made contact with Tolisso’s entourage regarding a potential transfer. Of course, United has been without Paul Pogba for most of the season, and the winter transfer of Bruno Fernandes has helped them turn their fortunes around. 

Pogba’s future is uncertain and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may see Tolisso as an upgrade from Scott McTominay, Fred, and Nemanja Matic, whose contract expires next summer. 

Tolisso could prove to be a more than viable option for United, but his injury history will certainly come into question when representatives from both clubs sit down at the negotiating table.
