RB Leipzig table ‘final’ contract offer for Manchester United target Dani Olmo
Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig have tabled their ‘final’ contract offer for Dani Olmo, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the past, according to Sky Sport reporter Florian Plettenberg on Twitter (h/t Manchester Evening News).
The Spain international’s current contract with Die Roten Bullen is set to expire in the summer of 2024. However, the negotiations between the two parties have stalled, which has alerted the likes of the Red Devils.
If the Red Bull Arena side are unable to reach an agreement with the 24-year-old soon, they will opt to sell him. Marco Rose’s team will demand €30 million for the playmaker in the upcoming transfer window.
Olmo has been at Leipzig since January 2020. Over the years, the Spaniard has developed into a quality player in Germany and has established himself as a key player.
However, since last season, injury issues have lighted the versatile playmaker at the Bundesliga outfit. In the current campaign, the 24-year-old has made 25 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals and providing six assists.
Olmo can play as a number 10 or out on the left wing. On occasions for Spain under Luis Enrique, the 24-year-old was also deployed as a false nine.
At United, Bruno Fernandes has cemented his place in the attacking midfield role. The Portuguese has been pivotal to our setup since his arrival in the winter window of 2020.
On the left-hand side of the attack, Marcus Rashford has thrived under Erik ten Hag. The England international has been in inspiring form this season and has carried the Red Devils’ front line.

Olmo is a quality attacking talent. Despite the Old Trafford side being blessed in the number 10 and left-wing positions, it would evidently not hurt to have the versatility of the Spaniard in our squad. But will we make a move for him in the coming months? Only time will tell.
