Man Utd transfer boost as Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule 'dreams of Old Trafford move' amid Solskjaer interest

BAYERN MUNICH centre-back Niklas Sule reportedly 'dreams' of joining Manchester United once he decides to depart the Bundesliga.

The 25-year-old – who still has two years left to run on his deal at the Allianz Arena – was targeted by the Red Devils last year.

But the Germany international remained in Bavaria, where he helped the club win the league, cup and Champions League last season.

But it appears that he has already made up his mind on the next chapter of his career.

According to Bild journalist Christian Falk, the ex-Hoffenheim defender has set his sights on a move to Old Trafford in the future.

Taking to Twitter, he said: "True: Niklas Sule dreams of playing for @ManUtd one day."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is known to be desperate to bring in a centre-back to partner Harry Maguire at the back.

And with Sule said to be keen to link up with the club, United could look to reignite their interest in him.

United are also said to be interested in prising away Dayot Upamecano from RB Leipzig.

The France international is expected to depart the German side in 2021, and he could decide his future as early as January.

Touted as one of the most talented defenders in Europe, the 22-year-old boasts just a £40million release clause in his contract.

United are believed to be looking to offload Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo, and there remains question marks over Eric Bailly.

Solskjaer's men have struggled defensively this season having shipped in 14 Premier League goals in seven games – losing on three occasions.
