Manchester United have been handed a boost in their chase for Ryan Gravenberch, as Bayern Munich continue to have interest in new midfielders.

At Old Trafford fans are desperate to see a new midfielder arrive at the club, due to lack of depth and profiles currently here.

Erik ten Hag is seemingly also increasingly keen to see midfield reinforcements come in with the sale of Fred and potentially Scott McTominay meaning United lack proper midfielders.

Sofyan Amrabat has been waiting on United to make their move for him all summer, but now with little time left, rumours have gone quiet on this.

Instead, persistent links continue to be made regarding Bayern Munich star Ryan Gravenberch and his potential move to the Premier League.

Gravenberch hoping for United move

Gravenberch has always been a name considered this summer, and the fact even this late they are so prevalent, should mean something.

According to Mail Online, Gravenberch is now ‘hoping’ he can complete a move to Manchester United or Liverpool before the window closes on Friday.

It is unlikely the ‘dominant‘ given permission to make a move, unless Munich bring a midfielder in to replace him this summer.

It was suggested that Scott McTominay was an option for Munich, with Thomas Tuchel being a fan of the Scottish international.

This move could be now off as Bayern target an alternative option.

Bayern target McTominay alternative

It was only yesterday that McTominay was said to be Bayern’s top target in midfield as they insisted on strengthening.

Now however, it has been reported by Mail Online as well, that Munich are interested in Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha.

It is believed that Bayern will move for one of these names before the window closes, with either likely to benefit United in allowing Gravenberch to depart.

However, a sale of McTominay would likely give United the boost needed to bring in an additional player potentially finally freeing up Amrabat.
