Ryan Gravenberch has 'picked his next move' after Man Utd and Liverpool transfer talks

Ryan Gravenberch has 'picked his next move' after Man Utd and Liverpool transfer talks

He has picked his next move.

Ryan Gravenberch has reportedly already "picked his next move” amid interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.

Gravenberch struggled in his maiden campaign at Bayern Munich, having moved to the Bavarian giants from Ajax last summer.

Despite costing Bayern around £21million the Netherlands international failed to displace first-choice midfield pairing Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka for much of the campaign.

Moreover, Konrad Laimer's arrival from RB Leipzig as a free agent this summer has cast further doubt on Gravenberch’s long-term future at the club.

United and Liverpool have both been linked with a move for the Dutchman throughout the transfer window, despite Bayern having continually insisted the 21-year-old is not for sale.

Indeed, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claimed that both English heavyweights made fresh contact with Bundesliga giants last week to enquire as to whether Gravenberch’s situation has changed.

And according to journalist Graeme Bailey, Gravenberch has told Bayern he wants to leave and set his sites on a move to the Premier League.

Bailey wrote in Team Talk: “Now, I understand that while manager Thomas Tuchel will push to retain Gravenberch, the player himself has informed Bayern he wants out. What’s more, his heart is set on moving to England.

“I understand the Dutch midfielder has told Bayern Munich he wants to move to the Premier League.

“Tuchel will resist a sale, but Gravenberch is thinking ahead to the European Championships next summer and does not believe that his chances of featuring prominently for the Netherlands are best served by being on the bench at Bayern.

“Both Manchester United and Liverpool have a long-standing interest in Gravenberch and I am told both clubs have spoken with his representatives in recent weeks as they consider him as an additional midfield signing.”

Gravenberch made 33 appearances in all competitions in his debut season at Bayern, but only six came from the start.

United may look to bring midfield reinforcements before the transfer deadline, having been over-run in that area in both of their Premier League games this season.

Furthermore, while Liverpool strengthened their midfield with the £16million acquisition of Wataru Endo from Stuttgart last week, the club may look to make more signings before the conclusion of the summer window.

Liverpool moved for the Endo having missed out on both Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia to Chelsea.
