First January signing? Man United open talks over signing of Leipzig star


    Word stemming from the media late on Sunday has pointed towards progress being made in Manchester United’s pursuit of January reinforcements.

    Reds’ woes continue

    The subject of potential arrivals at Old Trafford has of course found its way into the headlines once again over the course of the last 24 hours.

    This comes after Ralf Rangnick’s troops slipped to another disappointing result amid the club’s pursuit of a top-4 spot in the Premier League.

    Despite surging into a two-goal advantage courtesy of a brace on the part of Bruno Fernandes, the Red Devils were ultimately forced to settle for a share of the spoils at Aston Villa, owing to debutant Philippe Coutinho’s instant Villans impact:

    United, in turn, remain a full five points off 4th, on the back of just a solitary victory from the club’s last four league outings.

    Leipzig star eyed

    It should therefore not come as a massive surprise to hear that the man tasked with guiding the Manchester giants back towards the upper echelons of English and European football alike has set his sights firmly on reinforcements to the playing squad at Old Trafford.

    And, as alluded to above, on Sunday, a fresh insight into the efforts of Rangnick and co. towards precisely that has been provided.

    The info comes courtesy of reliable journalist Jonathan Shrager, who reports that those in a position of power at United have entered into discussions with their RB Leipzig counterparts.

    The subject of such talks? Amadou Haidara.

    Malian international Haidara has long stood as a key figure at the Red Bull Arena, since his arrival from partner club Red Bull Salzburg back in 2018.

    Not only that, but the midfielder even boasts a goal against his potential future employers, netted during a Champions League meeting between Leipzig and the Red Devils in December of 2020.

    Though negotiations remain in the ‘preliminary stages’, Manchester United are thought to be extremely keen on a deal, with further updates on the situation likely to arrive over the course of the coming week.
