Florian Plettenberg has recently revealed that the Old Trafford club are moving to hijack the deal from AC Milan.

According to Football Insider, Man Utd are closing in on a deal for Zirkzee and are holding talks with the Serie A side.

The news source claim the 20-time English champions could activate the release clause of £33.8million to get the signing done.

As per today’s version of Corriere dello Sport, Milan have already agreed a five year contract with Zirkzee worth four million euros per season.

The Rossoneri are even willing to activate the termination clause but they do not want to pay the 15 million euros demanded by the forward’s agent, Kia Joorabchian.

CorSport claim Man Utd have already asked Zirkzee’s rep for information and understand all the figures required to get the deal over the line.

The Oranje player is naturally a center forward but can also play on the flanks and even as a secondary striker if needed.

As per The Star today, the versatile star’s arrival ‘would push’ Marcus Rahsford towards Old Trafford exit.

We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds and will keep you updated.
