Philipp Max has been showcasing remarkable performances in the German league, which is evidently the sound basis for the interest registered by multiple English giants over the past few weeks.
The 24-year-old joined FC Augsburg on a two-year contract with an option to extend the agreement in 2015, for a reported fee of €3.6 million.
Later on, the German savoured the taste of a silver medal as part of Germany’s 2016 Olympic squad, and has been dazzling scouts with his exceptional form in the Bundesliga, mostly during this year’s campaign.
In view of his consistency and increasing number of assists, the versatile left-back has been praised for a place in Germany’s World Cup squad.
Jose Mourinho has been pursuing multiple left-backs, and this young starlet could be the apt player to contribute his services to the Old Trafford outfit.
Speculations aside, the player has his current contract extending till 2022, with his value increasing with time. Furthermore, it’s still uncertain whether Max is looking for a transfer as of now, as he is seemingly contentful with the football he’s receiving at Augsburg.
