Man United submit £35m offer for 21-year-old Dinamo Zagreb midfielder – report
Man United are interested in signing Dinamo Zagreb's Spain Under-21 international Dani Olmo, according to a report in England
Manchester United have made a surprise offer to sign Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Dani Olmo, according to a report in Croatia.
The Daily Mail quotes unnamed reports in Croatia that are claiming that Manchester United are eager to sign the Spain Under-21 international in the current transfer window.
The same article states that the Red Devils have been impressed by the Dinamo midfielder’s performances throughout the European Under-21 Championships in Italy this summer.
According to the same story, Manchester United are facing competition for his signature from a host of big European clubs, including Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan.
The Daily Mail goes on to state that the 20-time English champions have made a £35m offer for Olmo as the Red Devils presumably look to steal a march on their rivals.
The report adds that Olmo would prefer a move to the Premier League or the Bundesliga this summer to give Manchester United an edge over the Serie A rivals.
Manchester United signed Wales international Daniel James in a £15m deal from Championship side Swansea City last month to start their summer spending.
The Red Devils then landed Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka in a reported £50m deal at the weekend to bolster their defensive options at the club.
