A fresh insight into the mounting interest in TSG Hoffenheim star David Raum has been provided on Sunday evening.
For those not aware, left-back Raum has been hotly tipped for a departure from the Rhein-Neckar-Arena over the course of the last 48 hours.
This comes with the German international, fresh off a stellar debut campaign in the Bundesliga, having seen his production pique the attentions of a whole host of European football’s heavyweights.
The 2021/22 German top-flight season saw Raum rack up three goals and a hefty 13 assists, establishing himself as one of the division’s most productive wide players.

And one such club understood to have taken their place towards the top of the gifted full-back’s list of admirers comes in the form of Manchester United.
Word stemming from the German media on Saturday pointed towards the Red Devils as keen suitors of Hoffenheim’s star man, whose departure from Baden-Württemberg this summer is viewed as ‘more than likely’.
Any such fans of United hopeful of seeing Raum take his place on the left of Erik ten Hag’s backline at Old Trafford next summer, though, need not get their hopes up too high.
This comes amid confirmation that the Manchester giants have done little more than enquire as to the defender’s availability.
No form of offer, in turn, has yet been made.
As per the reliable Jonathan Shrager, meanwhile, also keeping a close eye on Raum’s situation are all of Man City, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund.
Spurs, Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund, and Manchester United are among the numerous clubs to express an interest in David Raum at various points. MUFC recently made an enquiry, but my impression is that it was only an initial conversation, and certainly no offer has been made
