Manchester United are paying attention to rising star Castello Lukeba, according to reports coming from Germany.

Fussball Transfers also relay Manchester United’s interest via BILD, reporting that the young defender’s ‘rapid development’ has really caught the club’s eye.

This is a welcome case of Manchester United targeting a rising star as opposed to an overly expensive established player. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know.

Castello Lukeba, the story so far

Castello Lukeba, 20, is into his first-ever season at RB Leipzig since making the summer move from French side Lyon.

He came through Lyon’s academy, making his first team debut under Peter Bosz in 2021. He also featured under former United star Laurent Blanc.

In the summer he secured a move to German side RB Leipzig, who have made a habit of raiding Ligue 1 for players in recent years, previously signing Dayot Upamecano, Christian Nkunku and Ibrahim Konate.
