Man Utd and Chelsea set the price to sign World Cup star Randal Kolo Muani

Last Updated on January 6, 2023 by

Manchester United and Chelsea have shown interest in Randal Kolo Muani but Eintracht Frankfurt have set a high price for the World Cup finalist.

Kolo Muani is enjoying a successful season, scoring eight goals and assisting ten in 22 games ahead of the Frankfurt Cup.

The 24-year-old continued to impress in Qatar, scoring in France’s semi-final win over Morocco and then playing in the final against Argentina after losing in the first half.

Kolo Muani won the penalty that raised France from 2-0 down and also scored from the penalty spot which Argentina won 4-2.

The player’s form for club and country has attracted attention from a number of Premier League clubs and ESPN say Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in securing his signature.

Erik ten Hag wants to improve his attacking options after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and has also looked at signing Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly is now keen to sign a new player in January after seeing the Blues slip to 10th in the Premier League.

German club Eintracht Frankfurt are not interested in selling Kolo Muani this month but know they could be forced to agree a deal in the summer.

But, as the player is still under contract until 2027 and there is no buy-out clause, Frankfurt will demand a fee of up to 80 million pounds in France.

Kolo Muani is happy to stay at Frankfurt for the rest of the season and would prefer to stay in the Bundesliga, although the lure of the Premier League may be hard to resist.

Despite spending more than £250 million last summer, Chelsea are ready to spend big in January, although Blues boss Graham Potter has remained tight-lipped about their transfer plans.

Asked about Chelsea’s relationship with Enzo Fernandez and Mykhailo Mudryk, Potter said: ‘It’s a good question but the problem is that if I answer it and I’m direct in that answer, every player in that position will be linked to Chelsea.

“So I have to avoid it – and I hope you can understand why I’m avoiding it.” I always answer that part of the question by saying that I am the head coach and my job is for the players here.

‘We will try in every window to fix it, but January is difficult because the season is in the middle.

“And at the moment, we have to deal with all the noise of Chelsea being involved with everyone and I’m not talking about any player who is not a Chelsea player.

‘As always, and the answer is boring, but my job is to help the players here and support the team in terms of the decisions they make in terms of development.’
