Bayern Munich’s slow pursuit of Assan Ouedraogo has opened the door for top English clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool to make their move, according to German media reports. The young midfielder, who won the U17 World Cup with Germany, had a breakout season in the Bundesliga 2 with Schalke 04, debuting with a goal on the opening day.

Ouedraogo quickly became a standout player, making headlines with his impressive performances and helping Germany secure the World Cup in Indonesia last November. Despite an injury, many teams still want the 18-year-old to play for them.

It looked sure that Ouedraogo would go to Bayern Munich this summer as they were planning to send him back to Schalke to play for one more year, to help him get better.

However, negotiations with Bayern have recently stalled, making his move to the German giants uncertain. According to Sky Germany, Bayern has yet to finalize the remaining details of their offer.

Previously, sporting director Christoph Freund had been handling the transfer, but Eberl, as Freund’s superior, needs to sign off on the deal, which has yet to happen.

This delay has encouraged other clubs to reach out to Ouedraogo’s camp. Liverpool, Manchester United, Aston Villa, and Newcastle have all presented their sporting projects and financial proposals to the young star in recent days. While Ouedraogo prefers to stay in Germany, Bayern’s hesitation may force him to consider moving abroad.

RB Leipzig has also shown interest in the midfielder, but their unwillingness to agree to a loan back to Schalke makes them a less attractive option for Ouedraogo. The urgency from Leipzig for an immediate decision further complicates their bid.

For Ouedraogo, the opportunity to join a Premier League club is enticing, given the potential for high-level competition and development. Both Liverpool and Manchester United offer promising projects that could accelerate his career growth. The financial incentives and the chance to play in one of the world’s most competitive leagues add to the appeal.

In summary, Bayern Munich’s delay in securing Assan Ouedraogo has allowed Premier League giants Liverpool and Manchester United to enter the fray. As negotiations continue, the talented midfielder’s future remains uncertain, with a move to England becoming increasingly likely if Bayern fails to act swiftly.
