Transfer Shocker: Man Utd Want £51m Striker to Replace Superstar
In recent years, Manchester United have let go strikers like Falcao, Van Persie, Welbeck and Hernandez. To replace the quartet, United have signed the likes of Anthony Martial and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The dilemma is that United have not been fruitful up front and need to further reinforce their strike-force as soon as possible under the management of Jose Mourinho.
If reports are anything to go by then the Portuguese manager is ready to sign a highly rated center forward in the form of Porto’s Andre Silva. Arsenal are also interested in signing the 21-year-old Portuguese international.
According to Daily Record, United have shown serious interest and do not want to lose out on him like they did in the case of Renato Sanches.
Silva made his debut for the senior national side last September and has already netted 4 goals in 4 games. This season, he has scored 10 goals and provided 3 assists in 17 appearances for Porto.
The Portugal international could be viewed as a potential long-term replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
As per the provided Daily Record link, Andre has a release clause of 60 million euros (£51 million) in his contract.
