RB Leipzig attacker Dani Olmo is expected to snub Manchester United for a return to Barcelona next year.



The Spaniard was the subject of interest from the Catalan giants over the summer, but a deal failed to materialise.

They are likely to return for his services in January, but it has been reported that United are also interested in him.

According to El Nacional, Olmo will prioritise a return to the Blaugrana despite the fresh interest from the Red Devils.

The Spaniard's family still live in Catalonia, and he is keen on proving himself after failing to make the grade previously.

Leipzig wanted £75m for Olmo over the summer, but the Blaugrana were only willing to pay £50m after a year-long loan.

They are still not in a position to buy him outright, and are expected to make a loan-come-buy offer at the turn of the year.

Olmo is apparently pushing for the move, but Leipzig could hang onto him until the end of the ongoing campaign.
