Augsburg defender Philipp Max could make a surprise summer move to Manchester United.
The 24-year-old enjoyed a productive season with his club last term, creating 13 goals as his side finished 12th in the Bundesliga.
“Philipp is the best (left back in Germany) and at his peak now. Augsburg would want around €40 million.”
Max joined Schalke from Bayern Munich in 2010, but he had to wait four years to make his league debut against Borussia Dortmund.
He joined Karlsruher in 2014, before switching to Augsburg the following year.
Max has gone on to make 91 appearances for Augsburg in all competitions, scoring three goals.
He was part of the squad for the 2016 Summer Olympics, where Germany won the silver medal.
