NICOLAS PEPE is ready to snub the Premier League for Bayern Munich.
The Lille winger, 24, is on Liverpool and Manchester United’s summer hitlist but also has a big offer from the Bundesliga champions.
Bayern are ready to swoop in a £70million deal for the Ivory Coast international after struggling to agree a fee for Manchester City winger forward Leroy Sane.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has tracked the French-born star as he looks for a young right-winger to bolster his attack.
And Jurgen Klopp has also considered Pepe following his Champions League triumph, with the Kop boss only tweaking his squad to add quality this summer.
Pepe caught the eye last season helping Lille finish in second place and earn a place in Europe’s top competition.
But Bayern also have him in mind to replace Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben at the Allianz Arena.
Wales boss Ryan Giggs said earlier today: “If it happens, United are getting an exciting player that I know that United fans will get behind and enjoy watching him.
“It’s fantastic for everyone, for Dan, for Manchester United and a good deal for Swansea City as well.
“I would say enjoy it, it’s the biggest club in the world so enjoy the challenge.
“He’s potentially going there because of what he’s done over the last year or so, especially the last six months.
“Be yourself, don’t be anyone else.”
A statement on the club website wrote: “Manchester United is delighted to announce that it has agreed, in principle, terms with both Swansea City and Daniel James for his transfer to the club.
“Daniel has successfully completed a medical at the Aon Training Complex.
“Further details will be communicated once the international transfer window opens next week.”
