Man Utd are in battle to sign €40m Bundesliga defender

Philipp Max ready to join Red Devils from Bundesliga. Jose Mourinho is looking to sign a new left-back before the summer transfer window close and Max is keen to move to Old Trafford. Philipp is one of the best left back in Germany and at his best form now, Augsburg would want nearly €40m.

Max is under contract at Augsburg, who finished 12th in the Bundesliga, until 2022. The 24-year-old has been an excellent season, and his performances have seen his reputation increased in last months. He made 13 assists in 33 league games last term but was kicked from Joachim Low’s Germany squad for the World Cup in Russia. Ashley Young occupied the left-back spot at Old Trafford the majority of last season, despite it is not his natural position.

Max is possible to play at wing-back or midfield, and his versatile style has seen him gain seven assists in 15 Bundesliga appearances this term. Mourinho is keen on to quickly get his transfer business done in this window. Both Portuguese right-back Diogo Dalot and Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred already signed..
