Decorated player hoping to secure Manchester United move

Fernando Llorente Spurs

Manchester United reinforced their back-line and the attacking department before the closure of the summer transfer window by signing the likes of James, Wan-Bissaka and Maguire.

However, the Red Devils did not strengthen their strike-force even after the departure of Romelu Lukaku.

According to an exclusive story covered by TeamTalk, the Old Trafford club are thinking about signing an experienced striker to improve the quality and depth upfront and Fernando Llorente is in the lime light.

Transfer: Report – Man Utd ready to reach agreement to secure £25million star’s exit

It is mentioned that the Spanish international, who is without a club at the moment, has got offers on the table from Spain and Italy but he is hoping to move to Old Trafford (TeamTalk).

The 34-year-old forward is a decorated star, who has won several major prizes in his career. Llorente won every domestic title in Italy with Juventus. He won the Europa League with Sevilla back in 2016 and with Spain, he won the World Cup in 2010 and the European Championships in 2012.

In the Premier League, he impressed with Swansea but at Tottenham, the veteran forward was mainly a bench warmer behind Harry Kane and rarely started under Pochettino. Nevertheless, his overall record is not bad at all.

He made 35 league starts (from 2016-17 to 2018-19) and directly contributed in 22 goals (17 goals and 5 assists).

In the current campaign, so far, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has utilized Martial in the main center forward’s position. Rashford can effectively play in that role as well. On the other hand, 17-year-old Greenwood is the club’s third choice forward.

In your view, do United need another striker? Should Solskjaer sign Llorente on a free transfer?
