Report: Man Utd could make second bid for Bournemouth striker Josh King

Manchester United could make a second bid for Bournemouth striker Josh King after their first offer was rejected, according to Sky Sports.

It’s deadline day and United are keen to sign a new striker, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer understood to be looking at the Norway international as a possible replacement for the injured Marcus Rashford.

King knows Solskjaer from his time in United’s reserves but back then he was unable to make the breakthrough to the first team.

Bournemouth will feel they need King as he is crucial to their relegation fight, but Sky Sports News reporter James Cooper thinks United will make a second bid to bring the striker back to Old Trafford.

He said: “He’s a player that Manchester United know plenty about — he came through the academy here. Solskjaer knows him well. It wouldn’t surprise me if United went back in. It’s certainly an interesting name and one that’s got more resonance than Salomon Rondon or Willian Jose.”

Aged 28, King is now an established Premier League striker, scoring 45 goals in 151 appearances.

We will be bringing you all the latest news on Man Utd throughout the day and it sounds like they’re working hard to bring a striker in before 11pm.

Bruno Fernandes completed his transfer to United yesterday and could feature in Saturday’s match against Wolves.
