Reports: Man Utd To Rival Liverpool For €55m Star

Manchester United are reportedly closely monitoring a €55 million-rated Liverpool target's situation.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see some players who are said to be transfer targets for United, according to ESPN.

According to ESPN, the Red Devils are keen to sign RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, who has been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool.

However, there are reports that the Reds are not willing to match his €55 million (R1.7 billion) release clause, which is said to be set to expire on 16 June. Thereafter, a fee would have to be negotiated with any interested party.

The 24-year-old has scored 30 goals and assisted another 12 strikes in 39 appearances for Leipzig so far in this campaign, but seems to be keen on moving abroad at the end of the season.

The Bundesliga side, though, will not budge on their asking price for the Germany international, which could be an advantage for United over Liverpool.

"It won't get any cheaper. We will not sell a player below value if he is under contract for more than a year," Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff told Sport Bild.

"In general, we always have to ask the following question – can we replace a player if we sell him for less than his market value?

"But I only think about those things once I have the facts on the table."
