The 17-year-old Jurgardens has become a hot commodity in the transfer market:

Bayern have been on the lookout for Djurgaden midfielder Lucas Bergvall (17) in recent months. Barcelona are one of the favorites to sign the player. Eintracht Frankfurt have presented Bergvall with a clear plan and are prepared to offer him around €9 million, but no agreement has yet been reached. Players have yet to make a decision.

According to 90Min.com, not only Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt have shown interest in the youngster who has been compared to Jude Bellingham, but Manchester United are also among them:

Manchester United plan to hold talks with Djurgårdens IF over a potential deal for teenager Lukas Bergvall, according to 90min .

The 17-year-old has made his debut for the Swedish national team after a hugely successful first season in the Swedish top flight and is widely regarded as one of the best prospects in European football.

Jurgardens sporting director Bo Andersen revealed in December that Barcelona had signed a contract for Bergvall, who plays alongside his brother Theo, while Borussia Dortmund are also thought to be interested.

90min understands both clubs are admirers of Bergvall, but the player’s representatives will meet with United to discuss a potential move to the Premier League. Bergvall trained with Manchester United’s youth teams a few years ago and is considered a supporter of the club.

Can Bayern Munich find a way to replace the youngster?
