German confirms English interest as Man United close in on big deal

Reports have claimed that Stuttgart are considering putting Manchester United target Antonio Rudiger up for sale in January.

The Stuttgarter Nachrichten says VfB management may seek to sell their star defender to balance the books, as there is talk that they are struggling financially.

United made enquiries over the summer and they’ve been keeping an eye this season, which has pulled them in even more as he has been mightily impressive.

Former Stuttgart coach Thomas Schneider, now with Germany’s backroom staff, revealed: “Even in my time in Stuttgart there were requests from top English clubs for him.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
