‘We have no intention of selling’ Football director confirms stance on Manchester United target

The Red Devils have been linked with a move in recent months

Eintracht Frankfurt Director of Football Markus Krösche has confirmed that his side have ‘no intention’ of letting 24-year-old star Randal Kolo Muani leave this summer, just 12 months after arriving in Germany.

Kolo Muani joined Frankfurt on a free transfer after his contract with Ligue 1 side Nantes expired last summer, and has taken to the Bundesliga like a duck to water, scoring 11 goals and grabbing a further 12 assists in 24 Bundesliga outings.

Taken to the World Cup with the French squad, he has racked up six caps for Les Bleus and was a first half substitute in the final, which they lost on penalties.

His profile has risen massively since the beginning of the season after an underwhelming time with Nantes where he scored 23 times in 87 outings, but Frankfurt have confirmed that they do not plan on selling this summer despite the rumours.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Manchester United, and has been namedropped as a potential alternative option should the Red Devils not be able to land top target Harry Kane this summer.

But the German side have other ideas.

“Another season with us would be good for Randal, we want to continue and not necessarily sell him”.

Meanwhile, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has outlined a potential pathway for the Frenchman, claiming that the plan for Frankfurt would be to sell him following the 2024 Euros, where a good showing for Les Bleus could further enhance his growing reputation.

This summer, they would only accept a ‘crazy bid’, adding that normal bids will not be considered, with reports suggesting that any side will have to cough up in excess of 100m euros for the attacker this summer.
