Manchester United receive transfer boost, told one thing needed to complete deal



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have received a transfer boost following new reports of a potential signing.

The Reds are expected to be busy in the coming weeks as they look to improve Erik ten Hag’s squad going into next season.

Several positions need strengthening in the transfer market, including centre-back and striker.

Rasmus Højlund is currently the only recognised no.9 at the club and needs additional support despite a promising debut campaign at Old Trafford.

According to David Ornstein, the Reds are exploring a potential deal to acquire Joshua Zirkzee from Bologna, who has a £34 million release clause in his current contract.

The report also noted that while discussions between the clubs have not yet occurred, United is in advanced talks with the 23-year-old’s representatives.

Last season, Zirkzee scored 12 goals and provided seven assists. He has also hinted that he is open to a summer move.

However, while AC Milan are also attempting to sign the young forward, there is a hurdle that they are trying to overcome.

According to Di Marzio, the main issue for Milan is that they are hoping to lower the transfer fee for the player and are uncomfortable with paying the commission requests of Zirkzee’s agent.

It was added that if United were to pay the £12 million Kia Joorabchian is asking for, then there would be little that the Rossoneri could do, and it would put the Premier League outfit in pole position for the signing.

On one hand, this could give United the upper hand in a potential deal for a talented striker. However, another viewpoint is that the club should not be bowing down to such a request from an agent, especially whilst their finances are not ideal.
