Man Utd express interest in signing David Raum

Manchester United have expressed an interest in signing Hoffenheim and Germany defender David Raum, 90min understands.

The left back impressed during his first Bundesliga season, scoring three goals in 32 league appearances having joined from second division Greuther Furth – who had just achieved promotion themselves – as a free agent.

He signed a four-year contract with Hoffenheim after the 2020/21 season, though 90min understands United have now checked on his availability ahead of their first season under new boss Erik ten Hag. They are yet to make an official bid.

Hoffenheim want around £30m for the 24-year-old, who has made nine international appearances for Germany, with a release clause set to come into play next summer.
