World-class midfielder only wants one club despite other “concrete” proposals “on the table” – report

Manchester United’s disastrous Premier League season highlighted the major deficiencies in Erik ten Hag’s first team squad.

United fans are now expecting a busy summer and INEOS will be hoping for a strong start to their first window after taking control of the sporting structure at the club.

Having watched teams slice through the middle of the park with regular ease throughout the campaign, reinforcements are certainly required in the engine room.

Reports are rife of players linked with bolstering Ten Hag’s midfield but one Premier League star appears to be off the market, with a move to Germany close.

According to Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg, Fulham’s João Palhinha is on the verge of joining Bayern Munich with the player optimistic the deal will go through.

Plettenberg says Palhinha is totally focussed on a move to Bayern and despite having “two concrete inquiries on the table for him”, only has eyes for the Allianz Arena.

New Bayern boss Vincent Kompany has spoken to the 28-year-old and both parties are confident he will become a Bayern player in the coming weeks.

The Fulham man does have the perfect profile to replace the void that Casemiro is expected to leave this summer, with United desperate to sure up the middle of the park before the start of the new season.
