Manchester United have been in search of a striker for quite some time and once again the name of Arkadiusz Milik is in the lime light.
Back in the winter transfer window, the Red Devils were prepared to secure the Polish international but the forward ended up staying with Napoli (The Sun).
Transfer: Man United prepared to agree £90million signing, believe move will be sealed
Now, reports suggest that Man Utd are in contact to finally sign the 26-year-old striker but they face heavy competition.
Renowned Italian journalist Ciro Venerato told Radio Kiss Kiss (via Mundo Napoli) that Napoli are in informal discussions, with the Old Trafford outfit, Fulham, City, Spurs and Leipzig.
Milik’s current contract with the Naples based side will expire next year and as per reports (Sky Italia), he is valued at 35 million euros (£32million).
The former Ajax man played as a second choice striker in Italy behind Dries Mertens and did well when called upon. Last season, in 2 Champions League starts, he netted 3 goals. On the other hand, in 19 Serie A starts, he found the net 11 times.
As far as his international career is concerned, so far, in 51 caps for Poland, he has scored 14 goals and provided as many assists (Transfermarkt).
At Old Trafford, Solsksjaer has not replaced Romelu Lukaku as yet. The Belgian forward banged in goals for fun for Inter Milan last term and we are stuck with Martial, who is not even an out and out striker.
The Frenchman has thus far played 180 minutes of Premier League football this term and is yet to score a goal or provide an assist for the team.
In all fairness, we need a natural No.9, someone good enough to net more than twenty goals in the league or else, we will continue to struggle. In your opinion, should Man Utd splash £32million to sign Arkadiusz Milik?
Really man united needs a natural no. 9 because Martial is not posing any threat to the defense line of the opponent, hence making them to feel relax and help their side in offensive attack, their by over powering the midfield and defence of man u. The other area that united needs to bring in a wonderful player is defensive midfielder because is the heart of the team, Matic is older and Fred is completely a failure-no profer tackles, no accurate passes and could not dribble any opponent. Meanwhile, Tominay is still struggling to get it.
Man Utd should go all out to sign Milik.
At £32m for a 26yrs old natural striker is a big bang
United are about to sell a player, from this sale, united need to add up 10million to the 90 million and submit for sancho to give you the break through. Since the board could bid 150 million 100 million shouldn’t be a big deal.
Yes Milik is perfect one so instead of going to argue with BVB about Sancho let man u seal the deal of Milik
Jadon Sancho should give his verdict by saying that he needs the transfer to go through as he waited too patiently and too long and it is about time. Jadon has to realise that after this. No club will be in a position as good as Man.Utd to come up with such a good price tag and that his club will even increase it as the years go by as that is how they are playing their game with the idea of gaining either the player to remain by hiking up the price and on the hand they are becoming more like money sharks. It looks like Jadon will have to remain the bait for his club.
