Manchester United Prepare Bid For Star Striker

Manchester United are interested in signing Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic.

The Red Devils are expected to table a bid for Serbian international after becoming surplus to requirements at Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid signed Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt in a big money move in 2019 but has failed to live up to exceptions.

The 23 year old has scored just 2 goals for the club.He spent last season on loan at his former club scoring 4 goals in 18 matches. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an admirer of the striker despite his setbacks.

The Red Devils have started negotiations with Real Madrid for the attacker and they are expected to price him away from Santiago Bernabeu before the end of the transfer window.

Manchester United have spent close to 120 million pounds this summer after signing Jordan Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for 73 million and Rafael Verane from Real Madrid in 42 million deal while Tom Heaton was signed on a free transfer.

Edinson Cavani is the only prolific and experienced striker at United. The 34 year old scored 18 goals last season while Anthony Martial (who was injured for most parts of the campaign) scored 6 goals in all competitions.

Marcus Rashford scored 19 goals in all competitions and played with shoulder injury for more than three months last season. The England International will be sidelined till October after his shoulder surgery.

Luka Jovic is highly rated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and a deal is likely to be done for the Serbian. An offer of up to 35 million pounds would be enough to price him away from Santiago Bernabeu.
