Ryan Gravenberch, the Bayern Munich midfielder, has revealed that he is concerned about his future amid interest from Liverpool and Manchester United.
The Dutchman joined Bayern from Ajax last summer, but he has struggled to establish himself in the Bayern squad.
Julian Nagelsmann and then Thomas Tuchel frequently opted to play Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka in central midfield, limiting Gravenberch to three Bundesliga starts in 2022-23.
Gravenberch appears to have fallen further down the pecking order with the arrival of Austria international Konrad Laimer.
Gravenberch was an unused replacement for the German Supercup defeat to RB Leipzig and the opening day league triumph against Werder Bremen, despite playing the final nine minutes of Sunday’s 4-1 win over Augsburg.
Despite having a contract with the club until the summer of 2027, there has been conjecture that he could move before the transfer window closes.
Gravenberch to sign for Liverpool or Manchester United this summer?
Gravenberch is thought to be eager to acquire regular playing time in order to increase his chances of making the Netherlands squad for Euro 2024.
Liverpool and Manchester United are among the Premier League clubs connected with a bid for the 21-year-old.
Gravenberch warned Bild about a likely exit before Friday’s transfer deadline:
“I don’t know what will happen in the next [few] days.”
Liverpool are thought to be in negotiations with Bayern Munich about a potential trade for Gravenberch as they try to strengthen their midfield options.
Despite bringing in Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis MacAllister, and Wataru Endo, the Reds are still looking to improve their midfield.
According to a recent rumour, Gravenberch would prefer a move to Manchester United, who are also looking to expand their present roster.
Man United allegedly picked Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat as their top midfield target, but a deal has yet to be completed, potentially opening the door for Gravenberch.
