Man Utd weigh up bid for Hoffenheim midfielder Christoph Baumgartner

Hoffenheim midfielder Christoph Baumgartner is interesting Manchester United.

The Sun says the 21-year-old has been hailed as one of Austria's biggest talents for years – and is already turning heads in the Bundesliga.

United have been tracking Baumgartner closely with a view to bringing him to Old Trafford to bolster their attacking options.

A bid in the summer is most likely, but with the player's contract running out in 2023, his current price tag of £16m is only going to increase.

And with Hoffenheim's history of getting good value for money – such as £29m for Roberto Firmino and £40m for Joelinton – Old Trafford chiefs will be expecting tough negotiations.
