SportBild reports that Eintracht Frankfurt have changed their stance on Randal Kolo Muani. If they receive more than €100m for the France international they will sell him and can then invest the money in other players.
Kolo Muani’s contract currently runs until 2027 but is attracting interest from the biggest teams in Europe with Chelsea, Liverpool and PSG all maintaining contact with the 24 year’s olds representatives. While Manchester United are also reportedly ready to make a bid.
The money received for Kolo Muani will be reinvested in the squad with €15m to be spent on each player, but sporting director Markus Krösche will not spend more than €20m.
Some of the players Frankfurt are interested in are Houssem Aouar (Lyon) and Dennis Geiger (Hoffenheim) who are both available on a free transfer in the summer. While Frankfurt are also interested in Christopher Baumgartner of Hoffenheim, who reportedly has a release clause of €30 million but are willing to lower it.
However, Frankfurt could also be losing several key players in the summer. Evan Ndicka and Daichi Kamada are set to leave on a free transfer. The futures of Jesper Lindstrøm and Djibril Sow are in doubt. While Tuta is also reportedly set to begin talks with English and Spanish clubs in April.
