Man Utd ‘s hunt for a striker may heat up in the next few months because they are in need of a top-class striker to completely solve the attack situation.
Recently, the Old Trafford team has kept an eye on a series of names that can be mentioned such as Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen or most recently Tammy Abraham .
Abraham is in the sights of Man Utd.
The English player used to play for Chelsea, but the lack of respect made him move to AS Roma in 2021. Under the guidance of coach Jose Mourinho, Abraham increasingly asserted himself as a top goalscorer. head.
Last season, impressive form from Abraham helped Roma win the UEFA Europa Conference League. At the moment, he also has 6 goals and 4 assists after 24 appearances in Serie A.
According to sources from inews, Roma is ready to sell the 25-year-old striker. However, they want to receive about £ 67 million for this deal. The fee that the Italian representative asked for was nearly equivalent to the buy-back clause that Chelsea had installed in the process of negotiating the sale of Abraham for them (70 million pounds).
Man Utd ready to spend big on ‘Erling Haaland 2.0’ deal
Manchester United soon plan to look for a potential striker solution ahead of the summer transfer window. It is reported that coach Erik ten Hag is keeping an eye on the phenomenon of Red Bull Salzburg, Benjamin Sesko.
According to Football Insider, the Red Devils are currently monitoring the 19-year-old striker and are ready to plan a move in the coming months, despite the player having previously agreed to join RB Leipzig for £21 million.
The goal of the Old Trafford owner club
However, as ESPN reports, the German team can take action to part with the Slovenian striker immediately if they receive an attractive enough offer this summer. Thus opening up the opportunity for Man United to recruit.
Last year there were reports that the Old Trafford team wanted to reach an agreement with Sesko. The Athletic also previously rҽvҽalҽd that the Premier League representative missed the opportunity to sign this player for only £ 2.5 million in 2019.
The signing of an exciting young striker from Salzburg will certainly make Man Utd fans not want to repeat the old story. Indeed, the Red Devils failed to buy Erling Haaland from the Austrian club not long ago.
Despite the jewel’s close links with former Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Haaland ultimately opted to join Borussia Dortmund in early 2020, before signing a £51m transfer deal with Manchester City last season. last summer.
Since then, Man Utd has seen the 22-year-old score 27 goals in the Premier League alone this season. Notably, 3 of them came from Man Utd’s 3-6 loss to Man City in the derby at Etihad.
Man Utd need to act on Sesko soon
Man Utd’s goal now is to correct that mistake by signing Sesko before next season. Recent signs suggest that Sesko is capable of competing with the current Man City star, having contributed up to 29 goals in just 67 games for Salzburg.
This player also has a time to score up to 22 goals in just 44 games when he is on loan at the lower division FC Liefering. The Austrian press did not hesitate to call Sesko a scoring machine.
Sesko himself admitted: “My teammates at the club said that me and Haaland were very similar, especially in terms of speed. Most of them even told me that I was better than him.”
With Ten Hag eager to bring in a No. 9, with Anthony Martial often sidelined with injury, the pursuit of Sesko could clearly solve the problem in attack.
Having let Haaland out of hand, Old Trafford’s leadership could not make the same mistake again. Sesko is a talented player and Man Utd must quickly plan to recruit.
