Manchester United and Arsenal ‘on alert with Bayern Munich keen to cash in on Corentin Tolisso’ as German giants look to fund Kai Havertz move
Premier League clubs are ‘on red alert’ with Bayern Munich ready to cash in on French midfielder Corentin Tolisso.
Manchester United and Arsenal are among the suitors for the World Cup winner and BILD report that Bayern will sanction his exit to help fund a summer move for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz.
United were reported to have made a loan bid to acquire Tolisso in January and the report in Germany is likely to boost the hopes of the Old Trafford club come the end of the season.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reported to have registered interest in him
Juventus, Napoli and Atletico Madrid are the other teams said to have registered an interest in Tolisso.
Tolisso moved from Ligue 1 to the Bundesliga in 2017 for £35million after impressing for Lyon.
He went on to play 40 games in the 2017-18 season as he was part of the side that lifted the title.

Tolisso’s form continued into the national team as he played a key role in Les Bleus’ World Cup success in Russia that summer.
But a serious cruciate ligament injury two games into the 2018-19 season set him back and having struggled to regain the form he showed when he arrived, Bayern are now reportedly ready to cash in.
Part of their logic could centre around the fee required to sign Leverkusen starlet Havertz.
The Liverpool target remains the youngest player in Bundesliga history to reach the 50-goal and 100-goal landmarks.
Havertz is only 20 and is desirable to managers looking to both the future and the present, with the playmaker already an integral part of the Leverkusen side.
The 20-year-old has scored 33 goals from 131 appearances in all competitions for the club.
