German giants have handed Manchester United a double transfer blow by offering to extend the contract of forward Mathys Tel and upping their interest in Antonio Silva, who were both United transfer targets.

It was rumoured that 18-year-old Mathys Tel was unhappy at Bayern under Thomas Tuchel and would have given in to suitable suitors, and suitors don’t come more suitable than Manchester United.

The young Frenchman joined the Bavarians in July 2022 from French club Rennes for 20 million euros. He has since made 59 appearances for Bayern scoring 13 goals in the process.

After reports of not enjoying life under Tuchel, he has reportedly had a change of heart about leaving the club at the end of the season.

According to L’Equipe, Mathys Tel will sign a new contract for Bayer Munich, one that would keep him at Bayern until 2029 with the official announcement being imminent according to Florian Plettenberg.

It is reported that he is ‘convinced’ he can be a Bayern legend ergo the change of heart.

Just a few weeks ago, football365 had reported that Manchester United had made contact with Tel’s representatives with ten Hag keen on securing the youngster’s signature.

Because of a lack of playing time, Tel’s agent, Gadiri Camara, confirmed that they may have to consider options in the summer, but with Tuchel’s departure at the end of the season now confirmed, the Frenchman’s future is at the Allianz Arena.

This comes as a huge blow to Man United, who had their sights set on Mathys Tel.

The other blows comes in the form of Antonio Silva, who has been on United’s radar for a while as they seek to reinforce their defensive department. The 20-year-old defender had been linked with lots of clubs, more so Manchester United.

Florian Plettenberg reports the defender is now on Bayern’s list too as they are impressed by his development. They could be eyeing up a summer swoop with his release clause set at 100 million, albeit it is rumoured that 70-80 could be enough.

Bayern joining the race for Silva could knock United off their perch as the favourites for the Benfica man.
