Man United team

As per reports going on in the media, top European clubs are interested in signing Serbian international Luka Jovic, who has been in sensational form for Frankfurt this season.

The 21-year-old star is currently on loan from Benfica and as per O Jogo his move to Frankfurt will made permanent in the summer.

The Portuguese outlet have mentioned that the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Barca, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are willing to pay astronomical funds to hire the services of the talented center forward.

O Jogo have further stated that Frankfurt would demand a fee of at least 60 million euros (£52million) and if Jovic is sold for that price then Benfica would earn 22 million euros in total (6 million euros for making the move permanent and 30% of 54 million euros i.e. 16.2 million euros).

Transfer: Report – Man Utd front-runners to sign £171million playmaker

In the current campaign, so far, the former Red Star Belgrade striker has featured in 36 games in all competitions for the Bundesliga side, scored 22 goals and provided 7 assists.

In the league, he has so far played 24 games and scored 15 times, only three goals fewer than Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski.

The stats are definitely impressive and it is not surprising that the top clubs are looking to secure his signature. However, I feel that Manchester United really do not need to sign him.

At Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford has been brilliant for us, moreover, Romelu Lukaku, who was out of form under Mourinho, has so far netted 7 goals and provided 2 assists in 9 starts under the management of interim boss Solksjaer.

So, we have got enough quality and depth in the strike-force department and we should look to strengthen the wide attacking positions in the summer transfer window. Sanchez must be sold and replaced and a backup option for Lingard must be bought.
