By Rune Gjerulff

Bild is reporting that Manchester United are ready to intensify their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund's Manuel Akanji.

Manchester United are ready to step up their interest in Borussia Dortmund centre-back Manuel Akanji, according to Bild.


Per the report, the Swiss international could leave Dortmund for around €25-30 million this summer, with Manchester United prepared to offer him a four-year deal worth €15 million per season.

Akanji has reportedly turned down an initial contract offer from Dortmund worth an annual €8 million and is holding out for €10 million per season from 'Die Schwarzgelben'.

Dortmund have already brought in a possible replacement, with Niklas Süle set to arrive on a free transfer from Bayern München. Additionally, BVB are said to be interested in Freiburg's Nico Schlotterbeck.

Akanji's contract expires in 2023.
