Manchester United Transfer News reports that the Red Devils are gunning for a young player. However, Red Bull Leipzig is also fighting to buy the same player. This is none other than Reece James who plays at Chelsea.
Manchester United transfer news has revealed that the club is tracking the 16-year-old. James had a start in the EFL Trophy game against Oxford. James has also trained with the Chelsea first team. He already has plenty of admirers across Europe. He is regarded as one of the biggest prospects for Chelsea.
Sports Nova reports that James came to Chelsea at the age of 6. He has already impressed against Oxford United sometime back. The future star will be turning 17 in December.
Manchester United Transfer news reveals that the Red Devils may give an enticing offer to James. Reece himself could be drawn towards playing for Manchester United. Even Red Bull Leipzig has now thrown its hat into the ring.
Chelsea does not offer many first team opportunities to academy graduates. James might take a decision based on future prospects. RB Leipzig wants to bring James to the Bundesliga. Manchester United are also monitoring his progress very closely.
Will James Be Bought by Manchester United or RB Leipzig?
However, Chelsea may not let such a talented young player depart. RB Leipzig has already signed Nottingham Forest winger Oliver Burke. This £13m transfer heralds the way for more such deals. Burke has impressed in his time at the club.
Ralf Rangnick witnessed James playing on a visit to London recently. For the uninitiated, Rangnick is the sporting director at Red Bull. This has sparked rumors of an impending transfer. Manchester United may not give up the fight as well.
A bidding war may well be on the cards in the future. Reece James sure seems to be the next big thing in modern football.
