Man Utd boss Rangnick in talks with agent of RB Leipzig midfielder Haidara

RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara continues to be linked with Ralf Rangnick's Manchester United.

The Sun says if United are willing to cough up the full amount in January, Leipzig have given a broad hint that they will let him go at once.

Sources in Germany claim Rangnick – who took him to Leipzig from Salzburg two years ago – has already spoken to Haidara's agent Volker Struth, and a deal is all but agreed.

The only sticking point was the fact he is off to the African Cup of Nations with Mali, although it is not said to be a major hurdle.

Haidara, who has largely been used in a defensive midfield role this season, scored his first Champions League goal AGAINST United, when Leipzig beat them 3-2 a year ago.

And on Tuesday the 23-year-old, who currently earns £60,000 a week, will line up against City in their final group stage game.
