Replacement identified for Man United ‘flop’ as club prepare €95m for World-class striker

Premier League giants Manchester United are desperately keen on landing Inter Milan prolific forward Mauro Icardi and planning to submit an offer in the New Year when the transfer window reopens.

Manchester United have serious issues upfront and new high-profile striker is very much necessary. The Argentina international striker is the best option in this sort of situation as he had a brilliant campaign in the Italian Serie A and proved to every football lover his greatness once again.

Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho will do all he could to lure the South American striker to old Trafford during the January transfer window.

European giants Real Madrid and Chelsea also reportedly interested in signing him and there will be a genie rivalry for the striker. His transfer fee could further increase and become very much.

The 25-year-old joined Inter Milan from another Serie A side Sampdoria back in 2013 in a €14million transfer deal. He became a prominent figure for the side and netted several fantastic goals since joining the Italian club.

In this season, the Argentine forward featured in 10 games, found the net 8 times and created 2 assist across all competition.

This is a good return and the in-form striker can further improve his figures with high-profile partners. He is contracted with the Italian club until the summer of 2021 and his buyout clause is about €95million.

It will be extremely tough to sign the striker during the January transfer window as the San Siro giant have big chance to qualify for the UEFA Champions League playoffs and the side will do all they could to keep the South American at the club.
