In the fight for Antonio Rudiger, Manchester United may be at a disadvantage because their manager’s future is still up in the air, according to reports.
Despite the fact that the Red Devils would benefit from signing Rudiger to replace the underperforming Harry Maguire, reports from 90 minutes claim that the lack of clarity surrounding the club’s immediate future will be a barrier to signing the German international.
Additionally, according to the article, Liverpool have expressed an interest in Rudiger at various periods, though they are not currently considered to be in the running for the Germany international.
Considering that the Reds are notoriously frugal spenders, Rudiger appears to be a great signing to provide Jurgen Klopp with more alternatives at the back for a very small financial outlay.
The Reds also have players like Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, as well as Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez, but they’ve also struggled with injuries at the back, and they would be wise to sign a world-class player while simultaneously weakening a big opponent.
As a result, one would expect Rudiger to choose Liverpool over Manchester United, mostly because the atmosphere at Anfield would be significantly more steady than at Old Trafford.
This is going to be interesting to follow, but all signs point to Rudiger moving abroad, with Real Madrid being listed as a potential destination in 90min’s report as a potential destination.
