Deal close – £73million Manchester United target on the verge of agreeing move elsewhere – Report

Joshua Zirkzee

Manchester United are in the market for a new striker and they have been following Joshua Zirkzee for a long time.

The Red Devils were interested in January and even reports in Italy last month indicated that they have moved to lure the Bologna center forward, who is valued at around £73million.

The latest update doing rounds in the media is not a positive one for the Old Trafford club.

According to an exclusive story covered by Caught Offside, AC Milan are closing in on a deal to hire the services of Zirkzee.

The news source have mentioned that Arsenal are after the Dutch striker as well but he prefers to stay in Italy and is now on the verge of agreeing a move to San Siro.

The former Bayern Munich player directly contributed in 19 goals in all competitions for Bologna and helped them book a place in the Champions League.

AC Milan will also take part in Europe’s elite tournament next season, something that Man Utd cannot offer to Zirkzee.

The 20-time English champions must splash the cash to reinforce the strike-force in the summer transfer window.

After the exit of Anthony Martial, Rasmus Hojlund is now the only remaining senior out and out center forward in the squad.

With Milan set to beat Man Utd and Arsenal to the signing of Zirkzee, who in your view should the Red Devils sign to strengthen the striking department?
