Man United ‘offered the chance’ to sign 23yo striker on short-term deal, Reds ‘considering’ making move for attacker: report.

United has been linked to a Torino defender for £25 million; further transfer speculations circulate.Manchester United was reportedly interested in acquiring Alessandro Buongiorno, a defender for Torino. It is expected that Erik ten Hag will pursue the acquisition of a new center-back for the current campaign, as this rank is among the four areas of the team that he plans to improve.

 

As of now, it is anticipated that Raphael Varane will leave the club this summer, given that his contract is set to expire in June. United has declared their intention to not renew his existing contract, and it is currently unknown whether the 2018 World Cup champion will accept an extension with fewer favorable terms in the event that one becomes available. He holds the belief that he is being evicted from Old Trafford.

 

The contractual extension of one year that was previously in place for Harry Maguire has been renewed for an additional 18 months, in contrast to Victor Lindelof. Last year, Jonny Evans entered into a 12-month contract; his current level of performance increases the likelihood that an extension request will be made.In light of the fact that Lindelof, Maguire, Evans, and Varane will all surpass the age of 30 prior to the commencement of the subsequent season, United are in dire need of a youthful natural center-back. Currently turning 26 today, Lisandro Martinez and Willy Kambwala are the only two individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements.

 

Buongiorno, 24, has excelled in Serie A over the past few seasons, and FourFourTwo reports that Erik ten Hag may contemplate acquiring him this summer. A €30 million (£25 million) offer for the Italy international with only two appearances may be considered by Torino.

 

Ten Hag has a preference for central defenders with left feet, and Buongiorno meets that criterion in addition to his competence as a left back. Three times during this season, he has found the net.

 

Reportedly, Dan Gore is contemplating a loan to League One club Port Vale in the interim. Multiple EFL clubs have expressed interest in the midfielder since September, when he debuted for United’s senior squad.Port Vale is reportedly allocating consistent playing time to midfielder Gore, who has been sidelined since Boxing Day. The Telegraph reports that an agreement could be achieved during the final weeks of the January transfer window.

 

In addition, Manchester United is reportedly interested in a Torino defender for £25 million.United reportedly “offered the opportunity” to acquire a 23-year-old striker on a short-term contract, and the Reds are “considering” a move for the attacker.This season, Manchester United has struggled to score goals. The lack of consistency with which Erik ten Hag’s squad has been finding the back of the net has become a significant obstacle for the Old Trafford club.

 

Rasmus Hojlund continues to discover his footing; providing him with a little additional assistance would not go astray. It would presumably be another six-month loan agreement, comparable to the one that Wout Weghorst had last season.

 

Graeme Bailey of HITC has provided an update on the situation, mentioning Moise Kean as a potential target for the Reds.

 

The report states that both Chelsea and Manchester United have been “considered” for the transfer of the 23-year-old forward from Juventus.

 

 

According to sources cited by HITC, both Chelsea and the Reds are contemplating a move to acquire a short-term attacker.Since returning to Italy, Kean has only started six games for Juventus, indicating that he is struggling to earn minutes and that a transfer may be imminent.

 

Juve is amenable to Kean departing on loan this month, provided that the club that ultimately acquires his signature covers his expenses.

 

The forward has prior experience in England, having made his youth team debut for Everton without significantly contributing to the team’s success. Evidently, he has significantly developed since then and is now in a different phase of his career. His ability to achieve success at this level is an entirely different matter.

 

Currently, he is battling for minutes at Juve, and I believe he would continue to fall behind Hojlund in the hierarchy. Additionally, Anthony Martial is still present (at least for the time being). Kean and the Frenchman could engage in a compelling battle if they both remain with the club after the January transfer window.
