Serge Gnabry

Both Manchester City and Manchester United are interested in signing Bayern Munich forward Serge Gnabry.

The 26-year-old’s contract at the German champions expires next summer, and the two parties are yet to agree new terms.

And now, according to The Sun, with Bayern keen to make some money on the front man rather than lose him for free, City and United ‘are both watching his situation closely’.

Gnabry, formerly of Arsenal, has reportedly turned down a £200,000-a-week offer to stay in Munich, putting Europe’s top clubs on red alert.

Pep Guardiola may need to strengthen his attack this summer, with Raheem Sterling expected to move to London and sign for Chelsea.

Gabriel Jesus is expected to be confirmed as a new Arsenal player soon too, which would leave the champions light in attack, and Guardiola thinks Gnabry could fit the bill.

The German international, who has scored 65 goals in 171 games for Bayern, can play on either flank as well as down the middle, meaning his versatility could prove handy for Guardiola.

New United boss Erik ten Hag is also keeping tabs on Gnabry with the Red Devils’ transfer window still yet to kick into life.

Despite regular talks with Frenkie de Jong, ten Hag is yet to add to his squad this transfer window, and with Cristiano Ronaldo requesting to leave the club, the Dutchman may need to get business rolling sooner rather than later.

Bayern are keen to keep Gnabry, but are willing to cash in if a new deal cannot be agreed.

A fee of around £35million may be acceptable, with the forward’s value decreasing with just 12 months left on his current deal.
