Man United keen on signing Manuel Akanji?

Manchester United have reportedly placed emphasis on signing Borussia Dortmund centre-back Manuel Akanji in the summer transfer window.

Akanji has less than 18 months left to run on his contract at the Westfalenstadion.

According to SPORT1’s chief reporter Patrick Berger, the Switzerland international has rejected Dortmund’s recent new terms with a salary worth £8m per year.

Berger also claims that the Red Devils are ‘very keen’ to sign the 26-year-old defender, who is valued at around £25.3m.

If the deal goes through, the centre-back would reunite with former teammate Jadon Sancho, who played alongside him during his four-year stint with Dortmund.

Akanji racked up 148 appearances for BVB in all competitions, including 26 games this season.
