MANCHESTER UNITED are still interested in Leon Goretzka who is no longer Thomas Tuchel's plans, according to reports.
The Red Devils have been keen on the Bayern Munich outcast with Erik ten Hag keeping a close eye on him all summer.
According to Florian Plettenberg, Man Utd "never lost their focus on Goretzka" who is "on the Premier League club's list".
The 28-year-old has insisted he wants to remain at the Bundesliga champs despite interest from United and also West Ham.
Goreztka told Sky Germany: " I have no intention to leave Bayern. I love the club, I love the city, I love the fans."
But ex-Chelsea boss Tuchel is said to prefer Joshua Kimmich and Konrad Laimer.

And Ten Hag hopes that could change the Germany international's mind.
Sky Sports in Germany say Tuchel will happily sell Goretzka for around £43m, as they bid to fund their pursuit of Harry Kane.
United have already recruited a midfielder Mason Mount this summer from Chelsea for £60milllion.
Goretzka's contract for the German club is set to run out in 2026 after signing a long-term contract back in 2021.
