German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich are interested in signing Manchester United target Emre Can, according to a report on CalcioMercato.

The former Liverpool midfielder is currently heavily out of favour at Serie A side Juventus and wants to be playing more regularly.

The 25-year-old was linked with a move away from Turin during the summer transfer window but a move never materialised and with the January transfer window around the corner, he could seal a move away.

Juventus have valued Can at around €40m and Bayern are understood to be considering a move for the German international.

Premier League side United are also said to be interested in helping Can revive his career and there could be a battle for his services soon.


Can would be an ideal signing for Bayern. He is a good box-to-box midfielder and would provide a good amount of quality for the club to challenge in domestic as well as European competitions.

He could also be tempted to join Bayern because it would mean moving back to Germany. Also, joining United would massively upset the Liverpool fans, who already aren’t too pleased with Can’s decision to leave Anfield.
