He could be a major upgrade on the Frenchman....READ THE FULL ARTICLE FROM THE SOURCE

With Anthony Martial’s contract up and the Frenchman leaving Old Trafford this summer, Manchester United have reportedly turned their attention to landing an impressive replacement for the forward.

Man Utd transfer rumours

The Red Devils are in for a busy summer as Sir Jim Ratcliffe looks to help the club finally turn a corner and into the direction of success once and for all. The minority owner has quite the task on his hands on that front, however, following United’s eight-place finish in the Premier League. That said, a shock victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup final highlighted the bright sparks that United have to build from this summer in a transfer window they must get right.

Despite that FA Cup win, which made it two trophies in two seasons under Erik ten Hag, the Dutchman’s Old Trafford future is still in doubt, with the likes of Gareth Southgate and Thomas Tuchel, among others, linked with the Manchester United job.

The Leipzig man already has some fans in the Premier League too with Chelsea goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic telling Nogomania via The Metro: “I know [about the rumours] and have been following him. He’s having a good half-season, he’s in great scoring form.

“I read that he’s scored in his last seven matches in a row. He seems to have gained strong momentum for the Euros. He’s a forward who has everything a modern player needs. He’s tall, strong, fast and intelligent….CONTINUE READING THE FULL ARTICLE>>>
