Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has his heart set on a move to England amid links to Manchester United.

United appear to be in the market for another midfielder this summer with Erik ten Hag needing another option.

Casemiro, Mason Mount and Bruno Fernandes haven’t really clicked as a midfield three just yet and rumours surrounding a new midfielder have been rife.

Sofyan Amrabat and Amadou Onana have been touted of late with United looking for legs and mobility in the middle.

There is another rumour which has really ramped up in the last few days, and it surrounds one of Ten Hag’s former Ajax players.

Manchester United ramp up Ryan Gravenberch interest

Reports from Foot Mercato last week suggested that United and Liverpool had reactivated their pursuits of Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch.

The Mirror even suggested earlier this week that United have joined Liverpool in tabling a contract offer to Gravenberch.

The Dutch midfielder only joined Bayern last summer, completing a move from Ajax worth around £21million.

Gravenberch didn’t play quite as much as he hoped or expected, starting just three Bundesliga games.

The midfielder described as ‘wonderful’ by Ruud Gullit rose to prominence under Erik ten Hag at Ajax could now leave Bayern – and United will look to reunite him with his former boss.

Gravenberch has ‘heart set’ on Premier League move

The transfer deadline is fast approaching but Gravenberch may now seek to push for a move away from Bayern.

TEAMtalk now claim that Gravenberch has his heart absolutely set on a move to the Premier League this summer.

It’s stated that Gravenberch has now informed Bayern that he wants to leave the club this summer.

Thomas Tuchel was looking to keep Gravenberch but the Dutchman is just desperate to move to England.

A reunion with Ten Hag will surely appeal to Gravenberch having worked together brilliantly at Ajax.

Gravenberch wants to be playing regularly in order to secure a spot in the Netherlands squad at Euro 2024.

Going back to the familiarity of Ten Hag may be an appealing exit route for Gravenberch, but Liverpool’s continued interest means this one isn’t a foregone conclusion.
