Man United have reportedly rejected the opportunity to land Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Filip Kostic for as little as £27m. Serbia international originally joined Eintracht Frankfurt two years ago on loan from fellow Bundesliga club Hamburger SV before making his move permanent during the summer of 2019 in a £6m move.
Filip who began his Bundesliga career for VfB Stuttgart in 2014 can play on both flanks and has been directly involved in 90 goals in 227 games in Germany’s top-flight. Kostic was offered to Man United for only £27m but the proposed deal was rejected by team officials.
Despite picking up a knee injury in his side’s domestic clash with Hertha Berlin last night, the 27-year-old attacker’s Eintracht Frankfurt career could be coming to an end after the player was reportedly recently offered to Red Devils.
Eintracht Frankfurt’s offer of the Serbian midfielder for only £27m was met with a firm ‘no’ from the Red Devils who have come under increasing criticism this summer over a lack of transfer activity.
Man United’s rejection of Kostic could mean the club stay confident they can successfully land number-one attacking target Jadon Sancho despite there being just nine days left in this summer’s transfer window. It’s claimed that Filip was made available exclusively to Man United, but was met with a straight ‘no’ from club officials
Kostic has featured in a total of 99 games for Bundesliga side Frankfurt over the last two campaigns and has been involved in 53 goals across all tournaments. Red Devils picked up their first win of the PL campaign on Saturday as they beat Brighton
