Manchester United are planning an offer for Bayern Munich £40m-rated defender Niklas Sule to solve their defensive issues, reports from Germany tell.
The Red Devils were eliminated from the Champions League at the hand of Barcelona under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and now the club plan to bolster the squad.
Defence is his biggest concern and first priority, so they have identified Bayern Munich player Niklas Sule as one of the top targets in the shortlist.
The German champions have little desire to let him leave, however, and a bid in excess of £40million would be required.
Sule is one of the lowest earners in the squad and Bayern are preparing to open contract talks to ward off the growing interest in the Germany international.
