Manchester United have been linked with a move for Torino striker Andrea Belotti for a while now.
However, the deal is going more unlikely as the days go by. The rated talent of the player and his young age of 23 is emboldening the Serie A outfit to ask for nothing less than £85 million. With the numerous top sides keen on signing him the huge fees are a turn off.
United are also having a hard time convincing Real Madrid to lower their asking price for striker Alvaro Morata whom they have agreed personal terms with. Morata is believed to be excited at the deal that would make him the star striker, with wingers readied to help him bang goals.
United’s bid of £52 million was turned down as Madrid want over £20 million more. Real are willing to sanction the deal but United would need to cough out more cash for the young and proven striker.
Same United have been linked with TiemoueBakayoko of Monaco but they would have to fight off competition from Chelsea. His teammate Fabinho is another attraction but the finer details would determine if United would sign them this summer.
Mourinho is keen on getting a defensive midfielder so Paul Pogba can move forward in play. The French side are not under pressure to sell Bakayoko except Mourinho is ready to pay top dollar. The Portuguese manager has been linked with NemanjaMatic from Chelsea and Spurs’ Eric Dier as backup.
It is already sure that the summer would see Mourinho splash cash just like last term. They ended up back in the Champions League while adding two major titles to the cabinet. United are expected to spend northward of £150 million in transfer targets.
